Margit Liesche's WWII Mysteries Feature the WASP, Recently Awarded the Congressional Gold Medal

Hollywood Buzz by Margit Liesche

Last week, President Obama signed into legislation a bill awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to the Women's Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). "The Women Airforce Service Pilots courageously answered their country's call in a time of need while blazing a trail for the brave women who have given and continue to give so much in service to this nation since," President Obama said. "Every American should be grateful for their service, and I am honored to sign this bill to finally give them some of the hard-earned recognition they deserve."

Mystery writer Margit Liesche captures the spirit of these intrepid women and sheds light on their courage and strength in her series featuring WASP Pucci Lewis. Her most recent mystery, Hollywood Buzz, was published in March 2009 by Poisoned Pen Press. It is Liesche's second WWII home front novel based on actual events and well-known figures including Jacqueline Cochran, the real-life leader of the WASP. "With this book, I set out to cast much deserved sunlight on this band of flying sisters," Liesche says. "I want to be there in person to see these inspiring women receive the top Congressional award they so richly deserve."

We've had the pleasure of reviewing Liesche's mysteries, calling her most recent "a delightfully entertaining mystery, especially for those readers who remember the great Hollywood stars of the 1940s." Read our full review here: Hollywood Buzz by Margit Liesche.
