(1847 - 1912)
“We learn from failure, not from success!”

Stoker was born in Clontarf, North Dublin and was the third of seven children. During childhood he was bedridden up until the age of seven at which point he began school and made a complete recovery.

After reading Maths at Trinity College Dublin his work included that of a theatre critic and a civil servant, before he moved to London and became manager of the Lyceum Theatre.

It was at this time that he began to write and in 1897 Dracula was published. Despite a contemporary review of the novel which proclaimed it, "an artistic mistake to fill a whole volume with horrors" (Manchester Guardian, 1897) the book is widely acknowledged as one of the most gripping horror stories in the English Language.
