Peter Klein

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 Carmen Austin. In 71 they moved upstate
where they raised children and Pete 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 in 1987.
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
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."
In addition to writing for the paper and writing books, Klein
also writes book reviews for AllBooks Book Review.
