From making up stories for his own children, to entertaining the world.
Online PR News – 27-February-2021 – Nottingham, England – Introducing Timothy Scott, the newest unlikely hero taking readers young and old by storm. Created to give his own son a hero to look up to, Tobey Alexander created a magical world hidden behind an ugly antique mirror. Wanting to inspire his own son, recently diagnosed with autism spectrum, the idea of creating a hero who was “different” seemed the perfect inspiration. From a family story to a trilogy of books, the series will conclude on April 21st 2021 with the final of the three books hitting the shelves.
From the author:
“I wanted to create a hero for my middle son, someone he could relate to and see as an inspiration for embracing his quirky behaviours and personality. When I created Timothy he was based on my son so, in a way, it allowed him to see himself as a hero without even realising. When I came up with the idea of Timothy Scott, we were on a family holiday in Scotland while my wife was undergoing breast cancer treatment. The family were surrounded by worry and fear, and I wanted to create an adventure we could all be part of. The world of Timothy Scott became something of a family escape at a time when it was needed. The fact that other people are enjoying the adventure fills me with such pride and happiness.”
