Teresa Dovalpage



Delio Regueral

Teresa Dovalpage was born in Havana, Cuba, and currently lives in Hobbs, where she is a professor at New Mexico Junior College. She is the author of nine published novels and three short story collections, and the winner of Rincon de la Victoria Award in Spain. Her most recent book is “Death Comes in through the Kitchen,” a culinary mystery set in Havana.

Her collection of short stories “The Astral Plane: Stories of Cuba, The Southwest, and Beyond” flirts with magic realism and esoteric themes, while “Habanera: A Portrait of a Cuban Family” is a coming-of-age story that revolves around an eccentric family living in post-revolutionary Cuba. A bilingual writer, Teresa keeps a weekly column in The Taos News where she shares short stories and non-fiction articles in English and Spanish.
