Tim and Justin Grotrian wrote “Waiting for Claudia: And Other Mazes” (published by Trafford Publishing) based on their interest in German literature and German Expressionism. They wanted to add something to the Dracula story from a slightly different point of view.
Dracula enlists the help of Willow, a girl with inexplicably strange powers and Veronica, a witch who had to travel to Croatia to escape a purge, to ensure the survival of his dear daughter, Claudia. With the help of this powerful team of characters, Claudia struggles to escape her predetermined fate as a vampire by escaping on a boat to America.
“It gives a new aspect to the story of Dracula in that it sheds light on a daughter that until now has been kept a secret,” says Grotrian. “The young people of today are fascinated with stories and games of fantasies. The diaries and the art in the form of mazes, will give them a chance to explore this intriguing mystery.”
