A note from the Author
Based on true story of Mary Shelley's life, and those around her, the novel pushes the reader to question what they know of history, for all the plot points are anchored to reality. Tirelessly researched in the National Archives and historic manuscripts, Pandora is a woven tale that flips the script on what we think we know. For instance:
Query: Could it be possible that Frankenstein was actually based on a secret laboratory in a London cellar now known as the Ben Franklin House? The finding of surgically dissected bodies dated to the 1700’s during the museum’s renovations in 1998 seems to support the possibility!
Query: In 1776 George Washington wrote in a letter that resides in the Library of Congress reflecting his fears that the Illuminati were a threat and John Adams alluded to a Hamiltonian Conspiracy, years later claiming there was much more to the duel that killed Hamilton than we might know.
Query: And Mary, daughter to William Godwin, anarchist, found herself not only in the company of famous poets and writers but also the disgraced and dangerous scoundrel Aaron Burr when he fled to London after killing Hamilton.
Could all of these events be the backdrop to Mary’s inspiration or did she find herself helplessly caught up in history? Pandora invites you into Mary Shelley’s world where nothing is as it seems and all the world is a chess game to powerful men who only want to see the world burn.
