About Claudette Melanson

Claudette Melanson writes & edits in Kitchener, Ontario with her six bun babies: Lafitte, Sansa, Daenerys, Smell, Gumbo & 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.

Reviews of Butters Comes Home by Claudette Melanson

Toi Thomas reviewed on Aug. 17, 2016

This is a cute story kids will like and maybe even relate to a bit. In extremely subtle ways, mature readers will pick up on positive dealings with such issues as separation anxiety, body shaming, abandonment, adoption, and alternative family units. Kids, however, will simply enjoy experiencing Butters journey to find a new and loving home.

The illustration for this story is excellent, with a soft color pattern that evokes comfort as you read. Children will be drawn to the realistic drawings and bright colors, while adults will appreciate the details.

There were parts of the story I felt could have a bit more whimsy to them. There were a few exclamation points that seemed to be miss placed. While this seems to be an ideal bedtime story for young readers, I think they may need a bit of help reading this on their own (especially for those not yet in school).

Overall, I liked this story and would recommend it to young readers and their parents, especially if they like animals and rabbits.

I purchased this book as part of a crowdfunding campaign and am pleased with the outcome.
