Herb Williams-Dalgart is an award-winning author and screenwriter, recognized by 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.
