Friday Night Reads: Uma Eachempati
This week I'll be hosting my eighteenth #FriNightReads! It's where I read the first chapter from an indie author, live on my author Facebook page. This Friday I'll be live-reading from Uma Eachempati's Whispers of the Heart. A telling memoir of her father's internment in a Japanese prison camp during WW II and how her family survived the war. Now, here's more from this week's indie author...
How did you first start writing?
I first started writing when my mother wanted to keep us kids busy. I must have been seven and my first story was, Why the Snail Carries His House on His Back - As He Was Selfish.
Why do you love it?
I love writing. It means I can write about the fearless and strong people I have met who I think need to be recognized. I love to write about other people whenever I can.
