9. I started a minor league hockey team, and while I was never formally accused, I may have stolen money from the gate receipts.
10. I tried selling life insurance, and did well by selling policies to incarcerated mental patients.

You will start to see who this is shortly.

11. I was driving a motorcycle recklessly, (speeding weaving, etc.) which brought me under police scrutiny. While spending a night in jail I was given the nickname by which most people know me.

12. In Indio, California (not much of a city at the time) I convinced a car dealer to sponsor a motorcycle stunt show using my new name.

Could this possibly be Evel Knievel?

I was born in London, England. Sadly, I never knew my mother who died shortly after my birth. My father was left to care for me and my older half-sister.

The family dynamics soon changed when my father remarried. His new wife brought her own two children into the union, and she and my dad later had a son together. I never got along with my stepmother.

While I didn't have a formal education, I did make great use of my father's extensive library. I could often be found reading, and liked to daydream, escaping from my challenging home life into my imagination.

I also found a creative outlet in writing. During the hours given me for recreation, my favorite pastime was to write stories. I published my first poem at age 10.

At age 17, I eloped to Europe with a married poet. We struggled financially and I gave birth to a baby girl who only lived for a few days.

That was quick, Slowkneenuh! Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (née Godwin) -- 1797–1851.

I had quite a few more clues:

I also suffered the loss of my half-sister, who committed suicide. Another suicide, this time by my lover’s wife, occurred a short time later. This allowed us to finally get married.

While visiting friends in Switzerland, we entertained ourselves one rainy day by reading a book of ghost stories. Someone suggested that we all should try our hand at writing our own ghost story. It was at this time that I began work on a novel.

I published a travelogue of our escape to Europe, all the while continuing to work on my novel. After publication, the book proved to be a huge success. That same year, we moved to Italy.

While I was devoted to my husband, I did not have the easiest marriage. Our union was riddled with adultery and heartache, including the death of two more of our children. I gave birth to my only surviving child just a few years before my life was rocked by another tragedy, when my husband drowned.

Made a widow at age 24, I worked hard to support myself and my son. I edited books, transcribed poetry, wrote short stories, travelogues and biographies, and published several more novels. I also devoted myself to promoting my husband's poetry and preserving his place in literary history.

I died of brain cancer at age 53 and was laid to rest with the cremated remains of my late husband's heart.

After my death, my son and daughter-in-law had my parents exhumed from a cemetery which had fallen into neglect, and had them re-interred beside me at the family’s tomb in Bournemouth, England.

My lasting legacy remains the classic tale of Frankenstein. This struggle between a monster and its creator has been an enduring part of popular culture, and has inspired many film adaptations.

I can't believe I solved something without Google! Being a lifelong fan of classic horror finally paid off.

1) The surname most folks know me by is a portmanteau. My life long occupation has been in the entertainment industry.

2) At a young age I contracted polio. Although I recovered, it was after very painful and controversial treatment developed by Sister Elizabeth Kenny.

3) Unfortunately, in my senior citizen years I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.

4) I am the only person to win acting, directing and writing Emmys for the same program.

5) As a science enthusiast, when CERN (the European organization for nuclear research) launched the Large Hadron Collider, the BBC called on me to offer my perspective alongside Britain’s most famous public intellectual, Professor Brian Cox.

6) A Boston Globe writer named me “the quintessential Honorary Woman: a feminist icon.”

7) Although most people think of me as only a television and movie actor, I actually began my career by doing live theater and received a Tony nomination.

8) I was a member of the celebrity panel on "To Tell The Truth" which featured (unknowingly) a serial killer contestant.

9) I've been nominated for an award in all four categories of EGOT. EGOT, an acronym for the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards, is the designation given to people who have won all four awards. Respectively, these awards honor outstanding achievements in television, recording, film, and theatre. Achieving the EGOT has been referred to as the "grand slam" of show business.

10) It's a male.

11) I was the only actor to appear in all 251 episodes of the TV series I'm most noted for, and directed 32 episodes of the show and had writing credits on 19 episodes.

12) I had no idea that the show would go on for 11 years, so I never made the move to Los Angeles. I actually lived in New Jersey with my wife and daughters and would commute to LA each week to film.

This should do it....

13) Even though the show was primarily a comedy, I wanted to make sure that the war aspect was properly explored. Part of my contract included that each episode have at least one scene inside of an operating room to show how horrific war was.
