Reporter and 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 24 years and has been a reporter for the Hamilton
County Express for the past ten years. It was going to work as a reporter that finally moved him to
return to his early dream of writing books.
In addition to writing for the paper and writing books, Klein also writes book reviews for AllBooks�Book Review.
