Herb Williams-Dalgart is an award-winning novelist, screenwriter, and blogger based in Southern California, where he lives with his wife, their children, and the family dog. He holds an English degree from UC Santa Barbara, with an emphasis in creative writing, and a certificate in screenwriting from UCLA’s Writers’ Program. He also studied in England at Birmingham University and the Shakespeare Institute of Stratford-upon-Avon.

The grandson of a Word War II veteran, Williams-Dalgart grew up with a fascination for the time period. Pairing his interest in that era and his love of travel—with a particular fondness for France—he was inspired to write the historical novel, The French Girl’s War.

So part of the excitement of being a writer is playing a role in this most human endeavor of transferring ideas through story. It also provides a creative outlet or escape, much the same way it does as a reader. In fact, I think you have to love reading first to love writing – really two sides of the same coin.(less)

Don’t worry about marketability, publishing, sales, or any of that noise. If you’ve told a memorable and compelling story, the rest will come in due time. You can deal with the marketing and business stuff later. Write first! That’s what writers should do. The initial response to The French Girl’s War has been humbling, inspiring, and rewarding, and not because of the marketing. To feel like you’ve done your best and produced something you can be proud of is, for me, the most important thing.(less)
