Shayne Leighton is an American performing arts prodigy perhaps best known as writer, co-director and star of the S.M.ir.K. Entertainment feature film The Incubus. The independent dark romance film garnered much media attention with its successful release in theaters as Shayne wrote it while in high school in Florida, USA. Leighton, a successful pop singer also had several songs appear on the film soundtrack.

Now, 21-year-old Leighton is excited to release her debut young adult novel series, Of Light and Darkness, set in contemporary Prague, as well as developing the film adaptation of the novel series starring Michael Welch from theTwilight Saga and Cassie Scerbo from ABC Family’s Make It Or Break It and Teen Spirit.

The first book of the series Of Light & Darkness: The Vampire’s Daughter is currently available through Decadent Publishing and is the dark, goth story of Charlotte, a mortal girl bound between the lines of light and darkness who must fight for life and love in a mystical realm of fantasy, in a town just beyond the boundaries of the modern world.

In addition to Of Light and Darkness, Shayne Leighton’s other projects include recording a new music album with producer Ginger Salem (official vocal coach to Austin Mahone), writing several screenplays, with one called Masque which is a retelling of the classic Phantom of the Opera, and acting in the fantasy action film, Legend of the Red Reaper which will debut at the 2012 AFM in Los Angeles.

Of Light and Darkness: The Vampire’s Daughter

Abandoned as an infant in Prague, naive and strong-willed Charlotte Ruzikova was raised by one of the last vampires left alive. As a human, she knows no other home than the one nestled deep in the woods of Eastern Europe, where witches drew spells of enchantment, phasers threw tea parties, and elves are the closest in kin. Charlotte has lived her life in the dark with her Guardian, content to having him to herself and reveling in his attention, until she’s realizes she wants more.

Resident medical doctor and vampire, Valek Ruzik fears the day his ward would come of age and blossom into a fine woman, and he is forced to confront his own motives as time is of the essence once his past catches up to him, and their lives become endangered.

As genocide and war threaten their secret society, the dictator in power is ready to wipe out Valek’s race, but Charlotte will not allow that to happen. Fighting for the only one she’s ever loved and truly believed in, she will do whatever it takes to save their love…before the sun comes up and light takes over.
