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

Meet the real Rose Williams from War on a Sunday Morning, Peggy Baccelli.

Meet the real Jimmy Hu from War on a Sunday Morning, Jimmy Lee.
