Tookie Before Tim is intended to answer those questions. It might also encourage some people to read the Tookie series. This little ebook tells the life stories of the title characters from birth up to the fateful day on which they first met. Only Tim Sent Flowers starts where this book leaves off.

Asperger’s was unknown when Tookie was a girl and, when it was finally identified as a syndrome on the autism spectrum, it was believed to be a strictly male issue. Girls weren’t believed to have it. So, it never occurred to Tookie’s parents or teachers that she might be on the autism spectrum. Thus, she has had to proceed through life unaware of the possibility.
