Author's Bio (see also Wikipedia)
Born in Ireland, Bram Stoker (1847-1912) overcame early childhood illness to become a gifted student and athlete well into his college education. Stoker embarked on a professional career as a civil servant in Dublin, publishing short stories and theatre reviews to supplement his income. Stoker's 1887 novel Dracula was inspired by a visit to an ancient Scottish castle and drew on many years of research into vampire legends and myths. Dracula sealed Stoker's own legend as a master of horror writing and gave rise to countless interpretations in film and on the stage. While Dracula is the work most associated with Bram Stoker, the author also wrote several other novels, among them The Primrose Path, The Jewel of the Stars, and The Lair of the White Worm.
