The Newfoundland Vampire by Charles O’Keefe

Joseph is what some would call a nerd,  a student who is into Star Trek and Dungeons and Dragons. Joseph has never had a girlfriend, he lacked confidence and he could not form meaningful relationships with others. He  has always felt different.

When Joseph is approached in a bar by a gorgeous red-head called Cassandra, he can not believe his luck. Things like this never happened to him. Why would this beautiful woman approach him now? Joseph and Cassandra end up spending the night together and not long after that vegetarian Joseph starts having strong cravings for blood. Just who exactly is the mysterious Cassandra? She can’t be a vampire can she, because vampires don’t exist, do they?

There are some really fresh and great ideas in this vampire story. This is what is now needed in such stories to make them not Twilight copies. The book would not just fall into the fantasy/horror genre because the story also contains romance, mystery and action. All in all a nice story about a recently turned vampire, who is coming to terms with becoming a vampire and having vampire abilities. The book has adult content so would be more suited to adults than YA readers.

Charles O’Keefe lives in the beautiful province of Newfoundland, Canada, with his wife and two feline ‘children’ Jude and Esther. He works as an inventory manager and enjoys many hobbies and activities that include writing, reading, watching fantasy/science-fiction movies and television shows, gaming, poker, walking, Pilates, and of course fantasizing about vampires.
