Irene Blea discusses how space and place are structured, and how they impact character development from a latent and manifest perspective.
She draws from natural and social phenomena, demographics, climate, and human activity to render robust stories with unforgettable characters.

During her academic career she published eight textbooks, many academic and popular articles, and poetry. She was recently identified as one of the top ten Latino writers in the U.S. Her work in progress includes the third novel in her Suzanna trilogy, and Daughters of the West Mesa currently in print.
