Welcome to TRS Blossom Books
Timena Rhodes-Scott first wrote her children’s books manuscripts, in 2003, as part of her teaching degree assignments. In 2020, with covid19 it highlighted the need to live in the present moment & finally publish her first book, Keep Shining Bright. The heartfelt message of this book whispers to the inner child of each reader & listener, that they are valuable and they belong.
Timena tried for many years to illustrate her own books but found Szucher Ágnes had the enchanting art to bring the stories to life.
They are limited first editions so get in quick! The first book is hot off the press today. However, the second book, You Belong Here Too, will be published in 2021.

About the illustrator
Ágnes Szucher started out as a professional actor and puppeteer, the latter leading her to explore the world of animation. In 2017 she created her first animated short film that participated in Romanian and Hungarian international film festivals. While animating she fell in love with digital illustration and became a self-taught and passionate children’s book illustrator. Her illustration abilities span a wide range of styles, but at the core she always focuses on the power of expressive bodily and facial gestures.
“This book is such a delight.
In this quality children’s book Timena has beautifully captured the adorable, endearing characters of Dawar the star and the wise, old grandmother moon, Kija.
It is a feel good tale that takes you on an educational journey through the history of the stars while also having a deeper more meaningful message for its readers.
The illustrations are beautiful and have captured the essence of the story beautifully.
Children will be delighted to read this book and inspired to keep shining bright!”
