“LadyBug” Author To Speak At OU-Lancaster

Posted on:

Carole Amber’s children’s book, The Gift of the LadyBug, is helping young people around the nation cope with struggles, tragedy or loss in their lives. Writing the book also helped its author turn one of the most difficult experiences of her life into a celebration of ladybugs.

Amber’s son, TJ, died in April, 2009 at 14 months old due to complications from Leigh syndrome. It was during this dark time in Amber’s life that a story about two horses who become the parents of a ladybug came to life.
