The most famous example that I know about is Samuel Langhorne Clemens, or Mark Twain as everyone knows him. When he wasn't writing classic novels like The Prince and the Pauper, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court and all those Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin books, Twain fancied himself as a bit of an inventor. Believe it or not, Twain patented three different inventions, the most successful of which was a self-pasting scrapbook. Seeing as he was quite good friends with Nikola Tesla, and the two reportedly hung out together in Tesla's lab, this is perhaps not surprising, but definitely unusual for a writer!
