About the Author
Clouds Over Markota is a semi-biographical historical fiction, part war story, part love story. Not only is this novel a historical fiction but it also has its own history. As a survivor of the Hungarian Revolution and an immigrant from Hungary, my father worked on this manuscript for years, but left it unfinished when he passed away. My research for this novel led me to rent an apartment in Budapest, walk the narrow streets that the Soviet tanks once rolled down, and visit the little town of Markota. Clouds Over Markota is essentially fiction, but the characters are composites of real people I met while travelling in Hungary, and the political events are true to history.
