“A Must Read”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Jill

The Vorbing is a must read for all. Mr. Stafford (who is in my opinion a brilliant writer) takes the Vampire myth and turns it on it’s end by keeping to the original myths and dare I say history. In this fantastic novel vampires are neither gorgeous nor sparkling like most most fantasy novels or tv shows on the CW (The Vampire Diaries and the Originals). The novel keeps to traditional Celtic lore and as the series names, is the Vampire Creation Myth. The characters keep you reading and the vampires keep you invested in this new haunting series.

About the Author

Stewart Stafford was born in New York City to Irish parents. The family moved back to Ireland when he was three years old. He has lived there ever since.

His natural gift for writing appeared early. His first school report card when he was five had just one comment at the end: “Stewart writes very interesting stories.”

He listened to his grandmother’s tales of the Banshee in her kitchen and was enthralled and terrified. It was direct exposure to Ireland’s Celtic storytelling tradition and he was hooked. Stewart loves the folktales, traditions and superstitions of Ireland, the country that gave the world the festival of Halloween and Dracula author Bram Stoker. He went on to do an Irish Folklore course in University College Dublin. He also has qualifications in Theatre Studies, Criminology and Social Media for Business.
