Printed in a black, hardback, silk-lined, limited edition, DIGGING FOR DRACULA (a unique book-in-a-coffin) is the only book written by an Irish author honoring Dublin-born Bram Stoker’s classic Gothic novel, in its 100th year of publication.
John Sean Hillen is from west Belfast and has worked as a journalist and editor in Ireland, the United States and Eastern Europe for almost thirty years. His work in broadcasting and newspapers has taken him from covering the ‘Troubles’ in Northern Ireland; the dying days of the Communist regime in Romania; to the Gulf War. Aside from covering some of the world’s hotspots, he has been a correspondent in medicine, science and archaeology. He also worked at the United Nations Media Center in New York.
When he was lured to Transylvania for more than ten years to write for The Times, the Irish Times and The Daily Telegraph of London, he knew his links to the Aristocratic Count were inescapable.
At this juncture and before reading further, it is advisable to offer some words of advice, borrowing them from the long-toothed vampire himself who welcomed his visitors thus:
“Come freely, go safely and leave some of the happiness you bring.”
