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. Not surprisingly, 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 French War Brides: Mademoiselle & the American Soldier, a new paperback and e-book published by Paris Writers Group. This book was first published in French as Des Amours de GI's by Editions Tallandier and later in English as French War Brides in America by Praeger Publications.

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

In addition to being an author, Hilary wears a number of other 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, a travel blogger, and a humanitarian volunteer. An experienced interviewer, she has herself been interviewed on radio and television and in the press.
