Judyth Piazza Interviews Leonel Solis, Author of "Venture the Wind"

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Leonel Solis is an attorney and author who just completed his first book,  Author of "Venture the Wind".

Venture the Wind is about four longtime high school friends travel to the infamous brothel district of a Mexican border town to fulfill their rites of passage when they discover that one of them will have to battle a diagnosed brain tumor. Guided by a streetwise urchin from Mexico, they stumble across an assassination plot against the king of the local underworld. 

The young eyewitnesses, and those who will try to help them, soon discover that the assassination attempt is only part of a plan that threatens to change not only their lives, but can ultimately alter and destroy the peaceful way of life on both sides of the Rio Grande River.

WHO SENDS YOU is a literal translation of QUIEN TE MANDA, an ancient and often used phrase among Spanish-speaking people, especially parents.  The phrase can be interpreted to mean SERVES YOU RIGHT, but it can mean other things too.
