“I was inspired to pen this story in my junior year of high school. I was inspired by my childhood and teenage difficulties,” says Leighton. “
Truly believing nothing is impossible, even when things are at their bleakest, Leighton empowers readers with one of her underlying themes – no one is ever truly alone. And although the story is fictional, it touches on some controversial themes in today’
In an interview that will excite readers of all ages, Ms. Leighton can speak about the following:
Spiritual undercurrents that create memorable love stories
Writing as a life coping mechanism
Political undercurrents as they appear in her fantasy that are based on the atrocities occurring throughout the world
The difficulties of growing up and coming of age when feeling out of place and how it appears in the story
The dichotomy of good vs. evil
Leighton also starred alongside famed scream queen, Tara Cardinal, in the film 'Legend of the Red Reaper' which will make its world debut at the 2013 Central Florida Film Festival on August 31st, where Leighton will be in attendance.
Now, 22-year-old Leighton is excited about the recent bestselling status of her debut new 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 the 'Twilight Saga' and Cassie Scerbo from the social media phenomenon, Sharknado!
Shayne Leighton also currently working on her debut rock album, which will be released from the internationally renowned indie label, Spectra Records, sometime in 2014.
Leighton was named #26 in Boca Magazine's "Top 100 'It' People" for 2011.
