Victor Villaseñor is a novelist and screenwriter whose works have brought Mexican-American culture and literature to a wide audience. He is the author of the highly-acclaimed Rain of Gold (1991), the saga of his family's imigration to the U.S. from Mexico. The Los Angeles Times compared his first novel, Macho!, to the best work of John Steinbeck. His other works include a collection of stories for young adults, Walking Stars: Stories of Magic and Power (1994) and Wild Steps of Heaven (1996), the prequel to Rain of Gold. Villaseñor wrote the screenplay for The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez. Villaseñor lives in Oceanside, California where he continues to write.
''Rain of Gold by Victor Villaseñor, both enhances and enriches the American experience. It is a well-written work, filled with indelible drama and people.''
''. . . a grand and vivid history . . . His [Villaseñor's] characters are keenly drawn . . . Often I felt like a family member quietly watching from a corner stool.''
--The New York Times Book Review
''Villaseñor is a born storyteller, and this Latino Roots . . . is a gripping inspirational epic full of wild adventure, bootlegging, young love, miracles, tragedies, murder and triumph over cultural barriers.''
