About the Author

Indie Author Day pic 2.jpg

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 after whom he was named, Herb maintains a great respect for and fascination with “the greatest generation” and with the period. Many of his works, including his debut novel, The French Girl’s War, draw from the tapestry of this war-torn era to find 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 grandchildren, and the family dog in Southern California.
