About the Author
As an active and award-winning business writer, blogger, screenwriter, and novelist, Herb Williams-Dalgart has been recognized by several national and regional writing competitions for developing rich, memorable stories, layered characters, and fresh dialogue across many genres.
The grandson of a World War II veteran, Herb maintains a great respect for and fascination with “The Greatest Generation.” His debut novel, The French Girl’s War and his upcoming novel, Jingle Boys, each weaves a tapestry of a war-torn era with stories that seek to capture the heart, humor, drama, and sacrifice of the time.
Herb is a graduate of UC Santa Barbara with a degree in English, and an emphasis in creative writing. He holds a certificate in screenwriting from UCLA’s Writer’s Program, spent a year at England’s Birmingham University, and studied at the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon.
When not writing fiction or screenplays, Herb spends time with his wife, their children, and their dogs at their home in Southern California. He loves international travel, especially to France.
The author was named after his grandfather, Herbert who gave his life October 8, 1944 in the North African campaign of World War II and is now buried in Italy.
