If a story is good we become interested in the author. Same can be said of telemundo series that leave lasting impression on its viewers. Anyone can call themself a writer but not everyone can pull high TV ratings and followership consistently like Valentina Parraga.
A good telenovela is not just about the romance, I look forward to its conflicts, suspense, good and detailed characters, interweb of plots and sub plots and how all these elements are synchronised into a perfect TV series that you just can’t wait to watch.
Valentina is the creative writer (sometimes adapts) for hit Telemundo series such as The boss (2011), My Heart Beats for Lola (2013), Eva la Trailera (2015), Anita, do not worry! (2004), Queen of the South (2011) And more recently Blood and wine (2017). She has been a head writer with Telemundo since 2004 and it’s safe to say that any story she adapts, write or co-write turns into gold.
Just like Julie Plec in CW, Valentina Parraga is a woman who is not afraid to put her creativity into life regardless of her age. A perfect example of the saying that life begins at 50, she is currently 65!
