  1. Hi Miss Cruz! I’m a 4th year college student at the Ateneo and am currently doing a study of your magnificent book Women Loving. It would be really SWELL if i get to meet and talk to you in person. Also, I included in the third chapter of my study a probable interview with you to shed more light on the thematic concerns of your stories (w/ a hopeful disposition that you would say YES to this haha). It would really mean a lot to me if you adhere to my request. Thank you and have a great day 🙂

  2. Thank you for your interest in my work, Tricia! Happy to indulge your request! Let’s hope our schedules permit an interview before the year ends.
