About the Author

Jasun Horsley is a writer, filmmaker, artist, and musician. He is on the autism spectrum and sees creativity, spirituality, and the autistic experience (in its purest form) as synonymous: a going inward in order to make sense of what's outside, and vice versa. Writing as Aeolus Kephas, he is the author of The Lucid View.
