The first trilogy
When darkness invades enchanted lands, can one misfit shine with the full power of the spectrum?
Twelve-year-old Timothy Scott fears he’ll never fit in. Constantly bullied at school and haunted by nightmares of a shadowy monster, the timid boy thinks life couldn’t get much worse—until he’s diagnosed with autism. But he discovers his different personality is a unique gift when he travels through a mysterious mirror into a cheering crowd of mystical creatures calling him their savior.
With the help of his newfound friends, Timothy gradually learns his uniqueness is his strength and tries to embrace his role as a protector. But despite the hope and trust the strange world’s people place in him, he’s terrified he won’t be good enough to save the realm from a rising evil…
Can he dig deep to find the hero inside and defend the land from a deadly threat?
Neurodivergent author Tobey Alexander wished he had someone to look up to when he was a young reader. Now grown, the determined wordsmith has created a magical adventure sure to inspire anyone who feels like they don’t belong.
Timothy Scott: Shadow Island is the epic first book in the Behind the Mirror middle-grade fantasy series. If you or your child like positive autistic role models, imaginative beasts, and delightful coming-of-age stories, then you’ll love award-winning author Tobey Alexander’s heartwarming tale.

The continuing series
With Tim's adventures complete in the striking original trilogy, the story was not yet over. Returning to the realm Behind The Mirror I turned my attention to Tim's family, more importantly his younger sister Cathy. Picking up the mantle of her brother's creation, Cathy returns to the magical realm when a new threat arises and sets about a chain of events that threatens both their world...and ours.
