The author of the book ‘TJ and his Wheelable Chair’ paid a visit to Kilcullen Library to commemorate her new publication. The author’s work and the visit to the library were appreciated by the audience and the officials as well.
Amanda was born in 1976 and she specializes in Marketing, Advertising, and Public Relations. She graduated from Dublin School of Business and worked in the Marketing sector for many years. She also worked as a P.A to the Chairman of Nissan Ireland.
She is qualified as a Montessori teacher as well who gave up work in the year of 2009 when her son Tadhg was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Global Development Delay. She now lives in the Town of New Bridge with her husband and three kids.
‘TJ and his Wheelable Chair’ is a story of a little boy who is different in many ways. He cannot speak or walk but loves to listen and play.
He has many friends and he loves to be with them. His journey is not easy but he is full of courage and appreciation for life. His abnormality makes him unique and that is why sometimes he has hard times when people stare and look at him differently.
His aberration is his strength and he never lets himself down in the life just because he is paralyzed because that is a very lame excuse according to him.
The story is written in inspiration from Amanda’s son Tadhg.
