August 2012


Uma has a BSc. (Hons) in Biochemistry and worked as a research scientist for 8 years, before venturing into the teaching line for another 3 years. Her passion for writing made her switch careers again and she started working as an editor at a media company. An avid blogger, she loves reading about witchcraft and anything supernatural. Like most people, she enjoys the simple things in life. But the one thing that makes her insanely and rhapsodically happy is when she writes. She lives mostly in her head and her mind is constantly going places. Uma can be contacted at www.facebook.com/UmaMawaery

Anyway, since there are two authors in this story, and I don't want to c... Read more of this blog post »

The Underground Toy Society Helps Beary Bear by Jessica D. Adams
"Cute story

I loved the fresh idea of this story. It reminded me of the underground railway society so many years ago. I also liked the lesson it teaches kids of helping others. The real judges though were my grandchildren, who have it a big thumbs..." Read more of this review »
