The Clueless Dead is written as a vampire story from the male perspective and to counter a large number of annoying themes that have become prevalent in several works of vampire fiction. My character is an ordinary guy, a professional musician (but not a rockstar). He is transformed into a vampire as a result of a series of coincidences. He then must deal with the consequences of having vampire powers as well as the temptations involved in possessing the ability to mentally manipulate people, besides the spiritual quandary of being a vampire and a Christian.
Keith Greenwood was born in 1985. He has a bachelor’s degree in creative arts (creative writing) and also a bachelor’s degree in arts history from Wollongong University. The first novel he ever read was the Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien. He reads multiple genres of fiction.
Keith has written short stories and plays and performed with local theatre groups. He began writing The Clueless Dead in 2010 to explore aspects of vampirism he felt had been ignored or not looked at from different perspectives. He suspects that he might go crazy if he didn’t spend so much time writing.
