The Frankenstein monster is one of the best-known fictional creations of all time. In She Made a Monster, author LYNN FULTON (pictured) tells the true story of how he came to be. “Frankenstein is not just a myth,” Fulton told TFK. “[The monster] was invented by a real person. Her name was [author] Mary Shelley.”

The book transports readers to a stormy night 200 years ago. That’s when Shelley first dreamed up the famous monster. “Shelley said ‘How am I going to make my mark?’” Fulton says. “And then she wrote her story.”
