Lynn Fulton is the author of She Made a Monster: How Mary Shelley Created Frankenstein, illustrated by Felicita Sala. This children’s picture book, published by Alfred A. Knopf, is based on Mary Shelley’s own account of how the idea for Frankenstein came to her in a “waking dream” one stormy night in 1816.
Lynn is a California native who grew up loving books and wanting to write them, but never actually finished anything until she learned to type. Her keyboard skills led to one PhD dissertation and three novels for adults. She has worked as a college instructor, insurance investigator, seventh-grade English teacher, and writing tutor.
Lynn lives in Martinez with her husband and son, and enjoys painting and drawing as well as writing.
