The Waterstones event will include the launch of my forthcoming new horror book, VOODOO CHILD, with a special appearance by co-author Andre Duza.

Issue 251 of Skin Deep Tattoo Magazine is out now, featuring a brand new series, BEHIND THE INK, where I unpack the pieces of some of my favourite artists working today. This month, I’m talking with Lewis Davies, Gemma B (aka Scarlet Hel) and Jody Dawber, three artists with different takes on traditional who get worked up by everything from skateboarding stickers to pineapples at Tesco’s!
