Examples of authors/musicians who began their work in their 40s?

I'm looking for examples of authors and musicians who lived artistically unremarkable lives for their first four decades, only beginning to express themselves creatively in their 40s, and who subsequently received critical or popular acclaim for the work they produced during that fifth decade.
- I'm not interested in authors/musicians who were creatively active before the age of 40. The examples I'm seeking are of people who only began exploring their creativity once they were in their 40s.
- Likewise, it's got to be in their 40s. I'm not interested in authors/musicians who began their writing/performing/recording in their 50s or beyond. I really want examples of people who lived ordinary lives and then suddenly blossomed at some point in their 40s.
