After Trish Vickers lost her sight to diabetes, she strapped a bunch of rubber bands around a clipboard and used them as guides to write a 110,000 book in longhand. Every week, her son would come over and read to her what she wrote, but one time she gave him 27 blank pages. Her pen had run out of ink during a burst of inspiration.
The forensics lab of the local police spent 5 months extracting the information and saved her work.
On March 9, 2017, the first copy of her book, Grannifer’s Legacy, arrived at her door. She lost a battle with breast cancer the same day.
