"Good things don't come easy, my son," my grandmother Victoria Delgado Franco said. A Destiny Foretold was initiated thirty-six years ago as a preliminary novel for the forthcoming trilogy of her time in history."


Background Information

I was born in Crystal City, Texas in 1944. My grandmother began telling me stories at the age of six. She related our stories passed on to her by our Spanish ancestors from Galicia, Castilla y León, and the Aragón regions. Her stories took me back to 1796 in Texas. I am now researching genealogical records that can date back to the early 1700s in the Victoria, Texas region. As the years progressed, I knew naught what to do with the voluminous box at hand and all the notes and tapes I forthrightly amassed. Our untold, bountiful and courageous history of our forefathers opening the new frontier in the Americas for the other Europeans is documented but inaccessible and well hidden in clandestine libraries in this our country. My grandmother, Victoria, encouraged me to write her stories, "for one day, the world will know."

Birth Place
Crystal City, TX usa
Accomplishments

Won the Fighting Heart Award at Hale Center, Texas in 1963 in football. Played Officer Franco in the Junior Senior Stage Play. Competed in the Region's Golden Gloves Competition as a freshman and sophomore at University of Corpus Christi. Earned BA Degree from Baylor University 1968 in Spanish Literature, US Army MI, Vietnam veteran with thirteen medals and decorations. Published author after 36 years.

Additional Information

Soon, I will again start on The Legacy. This will be Book I of the trilogy of my grandmother's stories. I have to keep promoting A Destiny Foretold for another 10 months to keep the sales ongoing. This task and my administrator's contract job with the school district is a challenge. In October 16 & 17, 2004, I will serve in a panel, read and sign my novel at the Latino Family Book Festival with James Edward Olmos and George Lopez. Tony Diaz of Nuestra Palabra, Latinos Having Their Say initiated this great event for the public. Free Admission.
