Horror Author Intertwines Tattooing Career and Writing Career
When a Washington DC Metro Homicide detective started his shift on a sunny July morning, he was greeted with an unusual victim, an obvious snake bite. Not something normally considered a homicide, but a tattoo on the victim sends him down a path he would never have believed. As the week progresses, an increasing number of unexplainable homicides draws Detective MacCallen ever deeper into a world of tattooed nightmares, terrors enacted in the most gruesome ways imaginable. Can Detective MacCallen stop the murders before they happen again?
Michael Fisher, Fish to his friends and family, has worn many hats in his long life. He’s done a little of everything, including US Navy Hospital Corpsman, club DJ, security specialist, psychiatric technician, painter, and currently, father, Mason, author and tattooer, not necessarily in that order. He has a love of ugly Hawaiian shirts. He also bears a passing resemblance to Walter Sobchak in The Big Lebowski.
