Legendary voodoo man Doktor Snake (“Doc”) is the UK’s leading voodoo practitioner. He’s the author of cult bestseller Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook and he provides voodoo spellcasting services to clients around the world.
Doktor Snake grew up in London. Although a white man, he became a voodoo man after meeting a mysterious root doctor and singer from Trinidad called Earl Marlowe, whom Snake played guitar for in a band with during the 1980s. Besides music, the two would cast voodoo spells, and perform exorcisms and séances, for clients in London and other parts of the UK, and later the USA.
These experiences are chronicled in Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook, published in the USA by St. Martin’s Press and in the UK by Connections. With evocative illustrations by Chris Daunt, the book has been described as “kick ass voodoo on crack.”
Doktor Snake has been featured in the media, press and on TV all over the world and is acknowledged as one of the foremost authorities on selling your soul to Satan at the crossroads.
Today Doktor Snake divides his time between London, LA, and his country retreat on the eastside of paradise, where he cannot be reached by phone, fax or e-mail. Only true hoodoos know how to reach him there.
Doktor Snake walks on the edge of forever and always pays heed to his dreams.
Podcast & Live Shows
Doktor Snake also presents a popular podcast called Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Machine where he talks about his life as a professional voodoo doctor by day, and as a voodoo bluesman by night. Plus Doc performs live shows as the voodoo bluesman, playing deep, soulful blues by Satanic appointment since 1923.
Doktor Snake’s other books – written as Jimmy Lee Shreeve – include How To Be Famous (Orion), Mary Jane’s Hash Brownies (Cico), Blood Rites (Arrow), Cannibals (John Blake) and Human Sacrifice (Barricade).
