Bram Stoker was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland and later moved to London, England.

Bram Stoker was born on November 8, 1847, in Marino Crescent, Dublin, Ireland.  Bedridden in his youth, he recovered and attended Trinity College in Dublin.  After graduating, he became a theater critic, married, and moved to London, England to manage the Lyceum Theater.

He seems to have had a generally happy life.  Of course, he is most famous for writing Dracula.

How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams. (Bram Stoker)

Stoker did travel throughout Western Europe and even the United States.  He was successful and traveled in high literary circles with other Gothic writers such as British writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and American Washington Irving.  He died on April 20, 1912 at his home in London.
