About the Author

Pete Klein was born and raised in Detroit, Mich. Klein has been living in the Adirondacks for the past 24 years and has been a reporter for the Hamilton County Express for the past 12 years. In addition to writing for the paper and writing books, Klein also writes book reviews for AllBooks Book Review.

More About the Author

Pete Klein was born and raised in Detroit, Mich. where he attended Notre Dame High, Harper Woods. After high school, Pete joined the US Navy and served as a Corpsman in New Port, RI, and Long Beach, CA. After receiving an Honorable Discharge, it was back to Detroit for a year before moving to NYC to attend The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
Klein says, "I lived in New York at the right time (mid 60's) in the Lower East Side (East Village) and enjoyed discovering the city and myself.
In 1968 Klein married. In 71 he moved upstate where he raised his family and worked in the automotive aftermarket as a manufacturer's rep, traveling all of upstate NY.
Then it was back down to the city for a few years as the sales manager for a firm importing automotive parts and accessories from the Far East.
Missing the country life, Klein moved the family back upstate to the Adirondacks.
Klein has been living in the Adirondacks for the past 27 years and has been a reporter for the Hamilton County Express for the past 13 years. It was going to work as a reporter that finally moved him to return to his early dream of writing books.
The thought of writing vampire novels came early. After first watching the original Dracula movie, Klein asked his grandmother, a German born and raised in Romania, if there were any truth to the story. The grandmother, being a sensible Catholic, responded, "That's just foolish superstition."
But the fascination with vampires didn't die. Klein says, "I think being Catholic had something to do with the vampire fascination. Here I'm talking about the blood of life, intrinsic to both the story of Jesus and vampires, and the sexual undertones of most vampire stories.
The vampires in Klein's novels are very different from those in other novels. Here again, Klein believes his Catholic background has much to do with the difference in his novels.
Klein says, "I can enjoy just about any vampire novel or movie but never find any of them in the least bit believable or scary. I figure if there were any chance of vampires being real, they would need to be natural creatures created by God for whatever reason God would create them. Therefore, even though my vampires are extremely dangerous, I do not see them as demons. I tend to view them much as I view any deadly predator. They look and act like the humans they were before they became vampires but they do need blood and take what they need when the need arises."
The hiking guide book to trails in the Adirondacks, while very different from vampire fiction, was a natural for Klein who loved the outdoors and the northern woods even when growing up in the city.
In addition to writing for the paper and writing books, Klein also writes book reviews for AllBooks Book Review.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is Peter Klein"s second book in a series, and where it is a good read I did not think it was quite as well done as his first, I am lookforward though to the third book in this series.
