Inspirational Story About Imaginarium Attendee

We had a new article brought to our attention about a lady who is going to be attending our Imaginarium Convention this September. She contends with a crippling disease and wrote her first novel at age 65. She had that novel published last year and her new novel is being launched at Imaginarium. This is a very inspirational story and we wanted to share it with everyone!
