About the Author

Claudette Melanson writes dark fantasy in Kitchener, Ontario with four bun babies: Tegan, Pepper, Butters & Beckett. She graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a BA in English, BS in English Education and an MA in Literature. Harboring a deep admiration of vampires since the age of five left her with the desire to eventually become one, and now fuels the creation of her favorite paranormal characters. She hopes to one day work full-time as an author since there are many, many stories playing out inside her head. In her very scant spare time, she enjoys watching Japanese Anime and reading vampire stories...along with other genres of great fiction, as well as riding every roller coaster she encounters in both her hometown and away at signings. An advocate for good health and ketogenic eating, her favorite foods are bulletproof coffee, cashew-flour crust pizza and treats made with xylitol and almond, coconut or cashew flours. Future dreams include a cabin boasting a roaring fire, isolated inside a snow-filled wood in the Yukon-the perfect writing spot-and the completion of dozens of future novels and stories. A Rabbit Rescue fanatic and loving bunmom, she also hopes to help rescues all over the world save many innocent lives. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Innocence, this truly is.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 April 2015
Being a fan of all things paranormal I'm always looking out for something a little different. Several friends recommended this so I downloaded myself a copy. I knew it was going to be different from the others after checking out the cover art. Very unique graphics rather than some sexy vampiric models draped seductively over the page (don't get me wrong I love those images too but we do get a bit bogged down at times).

So I delved deep within the pages and became hooked. Its hard to say why without giving anything away but this story really flowed for me, I just had to keep reading. The 'Dark Innocence' part of the title is more than appropriate with Minks mother (sorry but liked this little pet name better than Maura) seemingly wishing to keep her daughter as an innocent child. Being very secretive, and for a very good reason (dragged out to the very end) not allowing her daughter to mature into something that is inevitable.

This book covers some issues that many growing teens will experience such as peer pressure and finding where you fit into the world. Making new friends and being able to accept their help in times of trouble. I hope I haven't said too much?

I recommend this highly for teens & young adults or even old fans of paranormal like me. Don't take my word for it try it for yourself.
