Meet Hilary

"I am part of all that I have met."  Alfred Tennyson

American by birth but also French through marriage, Hilary Kaiser has called Paris "home" for many years. Recently, she has also been spending time in her native San Francisco Bay Area. In fact, Hilary's life is like a bridge, spanning across the Atlantic and then on across the American continent to the Pacific. Indicatively, her family, educational and professional background, as well as her research, writing and outlook, all reflect her deep attachment to the United States, France and the world at large.

Hilary is the author of the paperback and e-book WWII Voices: American GI's and the French Women Who Married Them.

She is also the author of French War Brides in America (Des Amours de GI's in French) and Souvenirs de Vétérans (Veteran Recall in English).

A new paperback and e-book edition of French War Brides in America will be published in the spring of 2017.

Hilary wears a number of hats. She is a cross-cultural trainer, a former associate professor and researcher, an oral historian, a lecturer, a storyteller, a playwright, a world traveler and a humanitarian volunteer. An experienced interviewer, she has herself been interviewed on radio and television and in the press.
