Brighton signs Daniel Chavez, Sr. for his book “Marcelino and the Curse of the Gold Frog”
Brighton Publishing LLC announced the signing of author Daniel Chavez, Sr. for his vivid and haunting book about a migrant family nearly destroyed by their tormented matriarch in pre-1920s Texas.
Texas in the early 20th Century was an especially hard place for migrant workers, struggling to eke out a living and settle into their new lives in America. Years on the road have taken their toll on the Soldano family. The work, the poverty, the ever-distant American-dream never seeming to come any closer, no matter what they do.
But for the Soldanos, the real nightmare begins when Maria, the family matriarch, develops an unexplained power to move objects with her mind—what scientists call telekinesis—
From a Comanche shaman whose curse causes terrible damage, to a moment when Marcelino must save his children’s lives, Daniel Chavez has written a fascinating book combining tales from his own family history intertwined with important cultural morals that will keep their meaning for generations to come.
“At the heart of his stories is a message that family matters most, above all other aspirations,”
Daniel Chavez, Sr. is a descendant of the characters in his book, and the stories he has shared are but a part of the history of his family in America. He lives and writes in Kansas.
