I can't for the life of me remember or find the details of this, but I recall reading about an author who was disabled and completely unable to work, and began writing as a hobby, going on to become highly successful through it.
IIRC, the author is:
- Writes fantasy
- Made millions of dollars
Google's not turning anything up so I might be wrong on one or more of these details.
I was inspired by their personal story, and I'd really like to share it... but I need to find it first. Thanks!
