Crippling Crimson

Absorbing Azure

Progress(First Draft):



Hungarian author Daniel Makk (writing as Daniel McDaniel) achieved his dream of becoming a writer after years of working in finance. Daniel always had a love for fantasy and sci-fi but was often unable to obtain the works of his favorite authors in his mother tongue.

Twelve years ago, Daniel began to improve his English on his own in order to consume more works from his favorite authors, first of all Brandon Sanderson.

The language opened new doors, and Daniel saw an opportunity to follow his true passion: writing. With the growth of self-published authors, Daniel realized that there were new ways of achieving success.

Despite the steep climb he faced as a self-taught English learner, Daniel is now a published author with his debut Luminocity - Grieving Gold, the first in his Luminocity series.

Daniel lives with his fantastic wife—and dedicated beta reader—who shares his passion for fantasy. Their young son also shows a great love for books and stories, and Daniel proudly hopes that one day he can share his own work with him.
