Frankenstein is one of the original monster horror novels—and its author, Mary Shelley, was born on this day way back in 1797!
Shelley started writing the book, which was inspired by a dream, when she was just 18 years old. The book was published when she was 21. Later on Shelley wrote other novels, short stories, essays, travel pieces, and biographies.
Shelley is also known because she edited and promoted the Romantic poems of her famous husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley.
