Author Cecilia Ansaldo is a native Guayaquileña and was the Academic Director of Saint Mary University of Chile, Guayaquil campus professor. Her anthology is unique from a gender point of view because all of the authors included are female. She criticizes most Ecuadorian anthologies because they are compilations predominantly of male authors even though the Ecuadorian tales originally started with the works of Elisa Ayala.
