His 2004 TV series Amores earned him an Emmy nomination.

In 1999, he won the Prix du Grand Jury in France for his work as a screenwriter.

Reviews

JD DeHart (Reviewer) has just reviewed To The End of the World. Rating: 5 out of 5 stars Nicely written, and a book I would gladly recommend for readers who want to expand into a wider range of science fiction authors. This book was a delightful surprise and promises to set up other literary entries.
José Ignacio Valenzuela has achieved with this trilogy something very difficult: a book series which is pleasant because of its storyline, full of constant action, fantasy and mystery, but also one which is suggestive to the eternal hero's journey (...) It will not only captivate young readers but everybody who enjoys reading adventure stories. Carmen Dolores Hernández - El Nuevo Día
Well done! No more to add. Jose Ignacio's writing is amazing and the trilogy was worth reading. Margarita R . Dager
Great read for young people and adults. Magic realism from the new millennium. The plot develops very fast and engulfs the reader from the first page. I recommend it! TT Torres
The book is AMAZING. It transports you in that magical realism way that is so special to Latin American writers. MG
Great and fun! Silvia G. Alatorre
Angela is an Anthropology student at the University of Santiago who goes literally to the end of the world to a small and scary fishing village in Patagonia, to rescue her best friend (who may or may not deserve rescuing!). In the midst of horror and grave danger (is there any other kind?) and at great risk to all involved she also finds true love. This is a story for Young Adults, I guess, but I think it is for readers of all ages (because I loved it and I am a few light years away from being a "Young Adult!") It is refreshing and rare to have a young woman as the hero: She is smart, brave, up to the physical challenges, in serious love, and fiercely loyal! You'll love it! Like Nancy Drew on steroids! Karen - Reader
Great plot! Easy to read. Amazon Customer
This is the first time I read a book by Chascas and it has left me with a great feeling... this book had me engrossed with its unique story...You won't regret it! Lola- Reader
It is exciting to see a book of magical realism/fantasy in translation that will appeal to the Harry Potter generation. The characters are engaging, and the plot is a great combination of fantasy elements and suspenseful mystery. Looking forward to Book 2. -Joy Walsh, Educator
