German writer of fiction for eight- to fourteen-year-olds, who sold about seven million books, and whose titles include the five volumes on identical twins Gisel und Ursel.

Margarete Haller was the daughter of a Hamburg merchant. After graduating from high school in 1913, she started working as a volunteer, transferring about 100 scientific works in Braille. Due to the inflation after the First World War, she lost her fortune and had to take a job: She ran a bookstore in Hamburg which fell victim to a bombing raid in 1943.

Margarethe Deinert died on 22 July 1995 in Rahlstedt, aged 101.
