I’m a published author!

Louisville reviewThis month, one of my poems, Silence is Silenced, was published in a literary magazine called The Louisville Review. We got two copies in the mail. It was really cool to see my name in print. As soon as we opened the package, we saw the books and immediately found my poem in the section for children authors. There was a blurb about me in the back of that section. When I saw that, it felt awesome. I hope that this is just the beginning. Maybe I’ll actually sell some books some day.



About author

Austin Jepson

I am a non-verbal boy with autism. I was adopted by the Jepsons at age seven. Prior to that, I lived in foster care for 2 years. My original family could not take very proper care of me and I was taken from their home. My memories of them are still alive, though, and I love them, even though they had problems. My life now is better. My mom and dad love me and so do my brothers. I am lucky for that. As I am planning on going to college some day, writing in this blog is great practice. I hope you like it. Maybe you will learn something about autism. I hope so.
