Bram Stoker is an Irish writer, best known for his gothic novel Dracula (1897). After working in the civil service at Dublin Castle and as an unpaid drama critic for the Dublin Evening Mail (later the Evening Mail), he became the manager of the actor Sir Henry Irving until his death. Stoker turned to fiction later in life – his first book, The Duties of Clerks of Petty Sessions in Ireland (1879) was a handbook in legal administration – with his first novel The Snake’s Pass (1890).
