Through the eyes of a child, we are taken on a journey, as she watches her mother disappear through depression and tries to understand her mother’s transformation from what she once was, to where she is now, and how to help get her back and find her happiness again. With the strength of love, encouragement and never giving up hope, she can help her mother rise above her unseen pain.

About the Author: Amanda Lieber

Amanda found a box stuffed with note books, scraps of paper, old menus, bits torn out of magazines and crumpled serviettes covered with her scribbles, observations, characters, plots and stories. That’s when she realised she was passionate about storytelling and wanted to share her characters and their stories with the world.

So far being an actress has been Amanda’s favourite career, performing in South Africa, London, Edinburgh, Italy and Sydney. On the side she has been a drama teacher, fairy (with lots of sparkles and wings), curio shop assistant, pastry chef, theatre usher, a very bad coffee maker, an early childcare teacher, filed archives in a basement and more odd jobs which she’s sure will make a great story one day.  Amanda hopes that writing stories for children will be her new favourite career.

She is thrilled to have her first picture book published with Little Pink Dog Books and cannot wait to see what the future may bring…maybe she will read her story, and others, on Playschool.
