Writing a book is a common item on a bucket list. Many people start but never finish writing. What if you have a disability that puts more barriers in your way? Meet the fabulous women who have found the strength, determination and ingenuity to overcome extra challenges and achieve a dream.

Lynn Gordon has an inherited disease of the retina that would ultimately lead to her complete sight loss.

Marguerite Henderson lost her limbs and almost her life to sepsis in 2018.

What is remarkable is that both women didnít let negativity take hold. Where it could be so easy to sit back and focus on what they couldn't do, they both took the road least travelled. In spite of the difficulties they face every day, they found a way to write and publish their biographies to help other people.

Join Lynn and Marguerite in conversation with Kim Macleod of Indie Authors World, as we hear what drives them, how they have achieved a dream many aspire to and how this has led to new opportunities for them both.
