Aimée O'Connell began the Mission of Saint Thorlak (now known as Autism Consecrated) in 2017 with the goal of discussing autism and spirituality via the example of its namesake, St. Thorlak of Iceland. Her writing springs from her Carmelite spirituality, background in school psychology and autistic perspective. Aimée has authored the Novena in Honor of Saint Thorlak, approved in 2018 by Bishop David B. Tencer of Reykjavik; and Thorlak of Iceland, a full-length contemporary biography of Iceland's only native (and autistic) saint.
