Margit Liesche

About me

The author of LIPSTICK AND LIES and HOLLYWOOD BUZZ, WWII home front mysteries featuring the engaging WASP pilot Pucci Lewis and highly praised for their authenticity, Margit Liesche has appeared on PBS’ History Detectives program.

The child of Hungarian missionaries who settled in the U.S. after WWII following years of service in China, she grew up near Chicago and has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 40 years. Margit’s parents’ stories about their family’s experiences in 1956, told in dark, hushed conversations, filled an impressionable seven-year-old’s imagination. These along with Life magazine photographs of carnage in Budapest streets and a visit from an escaped freedom fighter, underpin her new multi-period novel, TRIPTYCH, debuting in October 2013.
