  3. I was only ten years old when I first read her novel. After that, I was hooked. I can't stop myself from reading her novels.

  4. I'm a big fan of Martha Cecilia kumpleto ako ng pocketbook niya.. Ung mga novel lang ni Martha yung nagpapaiyak sa kin.. Grabe ang galing niyang writer talagang dinibdib ko yung mga story pag binabasa ko...Umaasa pa naman ako na na gagawa pa siya ulit ng mga romance novel.. Kaya lang hindi na matutupad yun...Nakakalungkot na wala na siya..I love you Martha Cecilia

  7. Oh my Lord! I've been waiting for the upcoming books "Ang mga Leon ng Santa De Leones sa Kristine" and even waiting for Zach Navarro and Elisse love story. How could I be such a fool simply waiting and not browsing or surfing the Internet for the updates. :'( This is a long over-due sadness on my part. I have all her Series from Sweethearts, GEM, Kristine Series, My Love, My Hero and other books even before PHR. I am a fan since 12 and now I am turning 25. Feel like crying
