Bram (Abraham) Stoker was an Irish novelist, born November 8, 1847 in Dublin, Ireland. After graduating from Trinity College Dublin he became a civil servant, also working as a freelance journalist, a drama critic and editor of the Dublin Evening Mail. After meeting the actor Sir Henry Irving he became his personal secretary and later business manager of Irving’s Lyceum Theatre. To supplement his income he began writing a series of novels and short stories, the first of which was ‘The Snake’s Pass’. ‘Dracula’ was to become his best-known work, based on European folklore and stories of vampires. Although most famous for writing ‘Dracula’, Stoker wrote eighteen books before he died in 1912 at the age of sixty-four.
