Why Frankenstein?

When Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein; or the modern Prometheus in 1818 the horror genre did not exist, she invented it.

Born to famous authors William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, it wasn’t surprising that Mary would become an author, it was more surprising was how she took her grief over losing her child and losing her mother that turned into a Gothic novel about trying to bring back the dead.

From May 8 – October 30 Gal’s Guide has been broadcasting a chapter of Frankenstein read by Amber Jones.

Angie Klink as Mary Shelley

Angie Klink is humbled and honored to be portraying the brilliant author Mary Shelley for Gal’s Guide Frankenstein Halloween! Klink once played “Zorma the Leech” —a character she conjured to give a humorous séance for a high school Halloween party. For past Trick-or-Treat events, she has impersonated Lucille Ball, Mary Poppins, Sarah Palin, and a Mad Man secretary at the watercooler. (Her husband was the watercooler!) 

Klink is the author of eight books. She is a historian, advertising copywriter, and scriptwriter. She writes biographies, histories, documentaries, children’s books, profiles, and essays. Klink authored the biographies The Deans’ Bible: Five Purdue Women and Their Quest for Equality, Kirby’s Way, and Divided Paths, Common Ground all published by Purdue University Press. 

She authored the whimsical, lift-the-flap children’s books about Purdue University and Indiana University, Purdue Pete Finds His Hammer and I Found U. 

Klink was the scriptwriter for the public education documentary Rise Above the Mark, narrated by actor Peter Coyote. Her book Pledge and Promise about the history of fraternities, sororities and cooperative housing at Purdue University will be released in 2021. She is currently conducting research and writing a book about the history of WBAA Radio, Indiana’s oldest radio station located at Purdue University.

Klink has received 60 American Advertising Federation ADDY Awards, including a Lifetime Achievement honor, and an honorable mention in the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Competition. 

Klink holds a BA from the Brian Lamb School of Communication at Purdue University. Learn more at
