Ty Allan Jackson
Ty Allan Jackson is a businessman, publisher, and author.
After years of working in corporate sales, Ty always felt he was meant to do more.
In 2009, Ty Allan Jackson was inspired by a question from his son, who was 7 years-old at the time. “Dad, can I open a lemonade stand?” This motivated him to seek out books that would teach his son about entrepreneurship and finance.
‘Danny Dollar Millionaire: The Lemonade Escapade’ was born from a father wanting to provide something more for his son and other children. It was Ty’s very first book and the beginning of his new journey.
After submitting his manuscript to over 150 agents and being rejected by all of them, Ty’s determination did not stop there. Ty knew this book would be a much-needed resource, which inspired him to launch his own publishing company, Big Head Books, in June 2010. He self-published ‘Danny Dollar Millionaire: The Lemonade Escapade’ in December 2010.
Ty Allan Jackson is the winner of the Dr. Martin Luther King Content of Character Award and received citations from the Governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, Massachusetts Senator, Benjamin Downing and the House of Representatives because of his efforts to promote literacy.
His books build self-esteem and confidence in today's children by representing them in a modern, positive and fun way. Ty will not stop at just writing books, his goal is to teach the power of reading to every child. He has spoken to thousand of kids about the importance of literacy and they, in turn, have spoken to him, in person and through social media telling him how his books have changed the way they think about reading.
