Jackie is such a fan of Mary Shelley, a fact which prompted her to submit Freak Museum to Rosebud Magazine for the Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Award for Imaginative Fiction. Shelley was a woman of talent and illumination at a time when it couldn't fully be appreciated. She loved deeply, lost greatly, and died too young. She wrote many works of probing fiction of course, but her novel Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus is a great introduction if you're not familiar with her work.

Jackie submission was chosen by NY Times Bestselling Author, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, as judge to receive the 2009 Award for Imaginative Fiction in Shelley's name. To quote Nina, "Jackie's writing was skillful and pleasing, spare and fine in its choice of details. The world building was interesting and revealed in swift, clever glimpses."
