Meet The Real Home-Front Heroes

The Home-Front Heroes Series of books were inspired by the stories of real people who lived as children during WWII. Here are the real-life inspirations for each of my main characters:


Meet the real Helen Marshall from Doing My Part, Shirley Brand.


Meet the real Tai Shimoda from The No-No Boys. Tai was inspired by two men, Mas Yamasaki


Meet the real Miguel Montoya from V for Victory, my uncle, Roman Talamantez.


Meet the real Miriam Liebler from Wave Me Good-bye, Roslyn Arnstein
