SYDNEY, Australia (June 26, 2017) – An Australia-based author and former special education teacher has turned into a book the inspiring account one of her students, who tragically passed away several years ago. With simple verses and delicate illustrations, Margaret Wright tells the true story of Amber – a 9-year-old girl with a passion for life and a terminal medical condition.

“Princess Amber” offers readers a hopeful glimpse into what it truly means to live in-the-moment. Highlighting her young student’s passion for ballet and vigor for life, Wright presents to both children and families who have kids with severe medical conditions an uplifting story of overcoming painful circumstances to appreciate even the smallest of joys.

“It was with great passion that I taught children with special needs and worked with their parents,” Wright said. “This book reveals that even young children have the ability to inspire many, and Amber was undoubtedly one of those children.”

With an easy-to-read rhyming structure, Wright, who taught special education for more than 35 years, hopes her book will bring hope to young and old alike. “Princess Amber” puts forth the joyful story of one girl’s ability to weave a web of love around anyone she crossed paths with while simultaneously exploring the depths of life, death and loss.
