My Monster CripLit story, The Hilltop Gathering, appears in what I’ve affectionately nicknamed “the Frankenthology” known as We Shall Be Monsters (Derek Newman-Stille, Renaissance). Frances Elizabeth, or Frank E., is the first disabled protagonist I’ve ever written. The story takes place on her sixteenth birthday, as the family comes together to celebrate it. She receives a gift from her mother that sparks quite the reaction.
It was so great that Derek invited marginalized folks to share our monstery stories. This collection of Frankentales is inspired by Mary Shelley’s 1818 version of Frankenstein.
