Biography

I am a photographer interested in supplying, where possible photographs; FREE OF CHARGE; for eBook author's free books and LOW cost to others (sometimes free for just image credit). I also do book covers and yes; I can often use Photoshop to modify pictures you supply.
I have recently published my first novel - Mana (Magic) in the Modern World. I have often wondered what the effects of magic returning to the world. Especially during these 'trying' times. So many people willing to do hurt, physical and mental, to people that in many (most?) cases they do not even know.
I think there would be Chaos at first - especially among religious 'fanatics'; those that say it is my way or NO way!

NOTE- I am currently looking for Beta readers - email for details.
Currently working on a sequel which has some D&D players from the first book that stumble into a real quest.

I own copyrights to thousands plus am willing to try to photograph others and render the photos into scenes in your eBook.

  • Demon Lord VI - Son of Chaos on Jan. 16, 2012

    Hope the wait for VII is not too long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Personally I am agnostic and found the hi-tech society in the book to be much like our present American, and possibly others, in the realm of religion and science. In my 68 years I have noted many people love the word impossible – let’s face it – nothing IS. T.C. has shown how many (all?) people, and probably most/all governments, tend to react to the unusual or something outside their strongly held beliefs – disbelief and ‘impossible’! Aliens or Gods BEWARE! T.C. – do you have a list of very seldom seen words to use? Wow – had to look some up………….. Let me knmow should you ever need some free images or another Beta reader. GREAT series people!

    Outstanding read! Easy to read and story flows nicely. Would love to supply you with some free inside images and or cover. Especially if you have another of Kem in the works. Just let me know at noelbaba@vrfmail.com
  • Reacquaintance on Nov. 17, 2012

    Interesting read……and…….really like your cover! Nice photo. I do love redheads! Let me know if you (or other authors) ever need free images (image credit of course) for inside or even the occasional cover. Am retired so I am also available for beta and proofreading. Mac at mrmac@cirranet.com
  • Death Incarnate map of Raliea on Aug. 25, 2013

    While interesting this map is difficult to view on my Kindle. Would very much appreciate if I could receive an email with a map attached. My email address is on my page. Thanks Mac
  • The Grin of Prophecy (Book 1 of the Death Incarnate Saga) on Aug. 25, 2013

    Great story. The cover needs a bit more Photoshop work but is an interesting concept. Let me know should you; or anyone you know; need any images – free to low cost. Suggestion – also offer the entire series as one book - after reading the first free I would have preferred reading it and the 4 others I just bought as one book. Mac
  • Butler Did It! on Nov. 15, 2013

    Excellent read!. Kinda reminds of the old Perils of Pauline at the movies. I was born (1943) n raised in Alabama and hope the next Butler I just bought is as good. Let me know if you would ever like some free pictures for inside. Mac - now retired in Texas.
  • Pirates of the Storm: Stranded In Time Book 1 on Feb. 08, 2014

    I just finished Pirates of The Storm and immensely enjoyed the story. Really wish it was somewhat longer tho with some further adventures in the 17th century. I highly recommend the book! Fletcher; let me know should you ever want to include some interior images - I am willing to do some ‘free’ - just for photo credits. I own thousands including some castles in Turkiye. Especially for your Lake Porker one! After I put this review on Smashwords I will be buying your next. Mac noelbaba@cirranet.net
  • Rylae's Storm on Sep. 10, 2014

    Very good story. I recently wrote and published an illustrated eBook about Mana returning to the Modern World and thoroughly enjoyed the idea of Mana (Magic) in outer space. Just purchased the second book in the Ugly Box series. Love the name used for the series ! Let me know should you want to include free images - I own thousands. Mac
  • Heart of Ice on Oct. 12, 2014

    Outstanding! Riveting! I am buying Thunderstone next. Suggestion - if possible put it up on Smashwords too. Reach more readers.........
  • Deathsworn Arc: The Last Dragon Slayer on Nov. 03, 2014

    VERY interesting story and characters. ‘Whispering’ is a truly unique type of magic. Great fight with the dragon and a bit more realistic than most. One suggestion to Isis; the graphic person; I personally think the Elven ears are way too tall. I will be buying book 2 as soon as I post this review.
  • Dwellers of the Deep (Harbinger of Doom Volume 4) on Nov. 06, 2014

    Glenn; much as I have enjoyed the stories; I think you are about to price your books out of your buyers range.
  • Epic Unearthed on Dec. 03, 2014

    I am still reading (at about 30%) and find this quite an interesting read. Especially so as I used Atlantis in my illustrated novel. However; yes a however - I suggest reediting to include indenting the paragraphs and a bit of research on how archeologists carefully work a site. Your archeologists are not doing very well at preserving or documenting the process. This action takes place in ‘our’ time with digital cameras and other handy electronic gear being readily available. Still; I am enjoying this read.
  • Bleeding hands on March 02, 2015

    I agree with the previous reviewer - much too short! I really like your cover. I am writing a sequel to my novel would like your permission to use it, at least in part, in the sequel. I have ghosts in it and think it would be an interesting addition. I would of course credit you in the credit section. Also let me know should you want free images for your books.. My email is mrmac@nxlink.com
  • Ascended light on March 02, 2015

    Very interesting image for the cover - it really fits with the story. Please let me know if you can write a longer version of the child’s story/future. I have healers in my novel also. I also have a few people as ‘Druids’ with plant ‘powers’. They work with Mother Nature and for her and humanities benefit. Well done Marion! Also let me know should you want free images for books. My email is mrmac@nxlink.com
  • Dry Doctor to Wet Nurse on March 02, 2015

    Great image for the cover - it really fits with the story. Let me know should you ever want a few free images for inside the books. I think some hot pictures would add much heat! Give me credit for the images used of course. My email is mrmac @ nxlink.com
  • The Mission on March 03, 2015

    OK - I give up - where’s the rest of the story?? Interesting enough to ask - huh? BTW - I saw you are the D&D game master. I am currently writing the sequel to my Mana in the Modern World. Might you and your group be interested in supplying some material for the story? A group of D&D players and medieval reenactors have found a way into another realm. I am working on a section of their first venture there (they do not realize it at first). If you or any of your players are interested, please e me at mrmac at nxlink dot com
  • Demon Eyes on March 03, 2015

    Delicious!!!!
  • Cosmic Tales 1: Resurrection on March 03, 2015

    Please, please, please - combine the stories into a single book and email me (mrmac@ nxlink dot com) the link to download as a complete series. Much simpler to read. Thanks Mac
  • The Thirteenth Unicorn on April 11, 2015

    Outstanding read and I am almost 72 years old!!! Am currently writing my sequel to my illustrated novel - Mana in the Modern world. Reminds me of my D&D playing days - great memories!
  • Died Blondes on June 29, 2015

    LOVE the title and cover! A most interesting read…….
  • The Orthogonal Galaxy on June 29, 2015

    Most interesting and different.
  • Shepherd's Quest: The Broken Key #1 on July 21, 2015

    Just finished reading and it is Outstanding! - Certainly enough that a 71 year old X (are we ever really X?) Dungeons n Dragons player and DM? Put it this way; I enjoyed it enough that I just bought books 2 n 3 - even tho the prices were a bit ‘pricy’. Would love to provide some images (even free ones) for the books should he to redo the books. Brian - let me know should you ever need another Beta reader…….
  • Portals: A Dungeon Crawler Adventure on July 21, 2015

    Finished reading a week ago and it is VERY good - especially the epilog! Took me awhile to understand it (if I am understanding it correctly!) but once I think I did - well just WOW and what a surprise! Still chuckling when I think on it - hope I’m right about it. One note tho - it is difficult to follow sometimes so be sure to pay close attention to the read.
  • The Lady Bug on Sep. 12, 2015

    Just finished The Lady Bug - WELL DONE! Never having been in the characters situation; (I was AF for 20 years and DOD for 22); I cannot relate to their distress during combat. Especially at war in a tank! Your depiction of the trauma the WWII Vets experienced was well done. People now a day’s do not realize PTSD occurred to those men; and women, no matter where they served. On the battle field or the nurses in the medical field - everywhere. I had an uncle in the navy that had three ships blown out from under him by Kamikazes in the Pacific. He also went through Hell upon return and never really improver much before his murder. On to the book - thanks for using the word lulu. I will see if I can find a place for its proper use in my new novel. Nearing the books end I was despairing of Hawkins ever finding out the murderer and love the way you handled the find! And the end for The Lucky Bug - OUTSTANDING! Let me know if you ever need a few free images for any covers or the insides…mrmac@nxlink.com
  • Dreamcast on Sep. 15, 2015

    Dreamscape - the name caught my eye (and the price-free!). Finished the read yesterday and now face a budgetary quandary - to buy or not to buy the ‘rest of the story’. Why the 5? Simple - it was a riveting read! And the book offers an insight to possibilities: What if? More people were able to have n use that and other abilities? Our technological world tries to put blinders on everyone to what may be unique possibilities. Just because it cannot be measured, does not mean it is not real - open your mind people! Come’ on folks, Get some of your childhood fun n beliefs back, and SOAR!
  • The Kinshield Legacy on Dec. 31, 2015

    I just finished reading The Kinshield Legacy. I wish the four books came in one download rather than singly. I'll wait a bit in hopes….. I also wish I had the author's way with dialogue. love how seamlessly the story flows. Yeah - color me envious! I am writing (tho a bit stuck right now at a spot) the sequel to my published fantasy novel. Problem is that I'm not sure just how to get my characters into a 'fix' smoothly. Now I must comment on Weber's comment about the tavern scenes. After my many (30+) years in the military and DOD, many overseas, I found that many/most of the countries had bars that had 'free' women, and occasional boys, often offering themselves. Just another fact of life. I have even encountered, infrequently yes, but encountered the same in some of the lower bars / taverns in the US! Write on K.C. May, you're doing great! ps I tried to subscribe to your newsletter but not sure it worked......
  • The Fifth Elemental - Shepisode 1 - The Coming Storm on Jan. 06, 2016

    Very interesting beginning but too short - there needs to be a way to download all combined in one book. Downloading 8 times to get the full story is bad enough without then having to then open each book individually to read. Frankly, I would be willing to pay $0.99 for the book IF combined - email me should you decide to do so and I will buy it. Mac at mrmac@nxlink.com
  • Daddy Catches His Little Slut (Daddy Sex Stories) on Jan. 06, 2016

    I have never understood how some people can download a book - especially a free one - and gripe about it. Surely first you looked over the book online? If you didn't like it then don't download! Anyway, I liked the 'prose' enough that I would be willing to hire the author to assist me with some erotic sections for my Babes in Photoland book. (Despite the two bad reviews, I have had numerous folks download the book). In fact, the Babes 2 (which includes nudes and Bodyscapes) has been selling on Amazon. I plan on revamping both books to correct mistakes (my first books!) and hopefully add dialogue. So write on Candy!!!
  • The Dragon's Clause on Feb. 02, 2016

    An outstanding read. Tho a bit pricy for a short (6,070 words) story. But I certainly enjoyed the story. And yes I recommend it.
  • Under The Shade Tree on April 27, 2016

    I haven't written near as many books as you and I just read Under the Shade Tree. Interesting take on a ghost story and especially the use of a Shade. About to leave a review when I saw your e address (will still leave a review) I liked the story and I wondered why did you left her wounds clearly evident as a Shade…. In my book I also had ghosts assisting people to find their killers. Your story has given me an idea to have, in the sequel I'm writing - (or maybe a short story spinoff?), an IMS Mage that picks up a 'sidekick' ghost that helps him. If I do, would you mind if I credit you with giving me the idea due to your Under the Shade Tree story?
  • Infinity Squad on May 01, 2016

    A great action AND suspenseful book with a very surprising conclusion! I'm buying the sequel as soon as I place this review. Do I recommend it? Most certainly people!
  • CNSEV Tormalinas, Lost on May 07, 2016

    Overall a rather unique telling. I found the beginning to be somewhat dry and a bit difficult to fellow but still an intriguing concept. The technical aspects were occasionally, ok - to me, distracting from an otherwise excellent story. I would suggest less use of the word bleep in place of actual profanity word. Several places the use of bleep and bleeping completely confused the flow of reading. As I 'said' previously, overall, this is a unique story and I can almost see what weird things a sequel might entail - … PS - thanks as Bugs gave me on idea for describing the meat being cooked by the characters in my sequel (it looks like a cross between an octopus and a giant tick).
  • Zombie Outbreak Survival: Zombie Hive Incident #83-2005 on May 08, 2016

    Just finished book 1 - almost, almost decided to not continue but persevered on and am very glad I did. Although sometimes difficult to follow, I assure you, it is worth the effort. I am not a big fan of the Walking Dead tho I did watch it some but found the show not very realistic. Here Van has created a more plausible 'feel' to the zombie craze. In my sequel, I even fell somewhat into the craze as I added a very short portion with a few for one Paris scene. At least mine and Van's have a more realistic existence (tho mine were created by raising the dead via magical healing). One thing of note - if for no other reason, read it for the kickass Zombie Apocalypse Survival Quotes and some character's names! Love Lance Corporal Stonecipher's name and her 'handle', especially her weapon's name! Now on the book 2 - would have liked a better way to recognize which order to read as the title showing on my Kindle doesn't give a clue - had to write a note for myself.
  • Zombie Outbreak Survival: Get It Right or Die on May 08, 2016

    Disappointed - not as interesting as book 1 Needs more 'action' of the Marines vs Zombies.
  • Zombie Outbreak Survival: The Rules on May 08, 2016

    Mainly repetitive with no different info.
  • Erotica Short - Her Husband's Affair - Erotica Wife on May 16, 2016

    Very good and hot! - let me know if interested in some ghost writing for me using some of my many photos I shot over the years.
  • No, Dad, you can't fuck me! I'm your damn daughter, you pig! Part 1 Bareback For A Reluctant Daughter (Incest, Revenge, Cuckold, Humiliation, Cheating Teen Wife) on May 17, 2016

    Interesting story line but REALLY needs editing - esp for who's speaking what. Let me know if you ever need images - I own thousands.
  • The Gold Watch on June 15, 2016

    Very good / excellent and interesting "ghostly" story. I've read many (especially the free ones - I'm retired so 'jump' on the freebies) and have been wondering - Where do you find such interesting names for your characters?
  • Taj's Early Years on June 29, 2016

    An interesting story but difficult to follow. Often I was unsure who was speaking. Although it is clearly fiction/fantasy (?) I found most often wishing for a better explanation of Galen. I I fully understand your apparent frustration with getting, good or bad, reviews - especially for a free offering. I had the same frustration when I published my book. Finding Beta readers is difficult too. I would make one suggestion for this book - revise it to clarify who is speaking as currently a reader must backtrack to decide who is saying what. As I've told others - let me know if you ever need some images for covers or inside.
  • Visions of Magic - The Kidnap of Gabrielle Ulan on July 23, 2016

    Lovely story, especially Poppin and her funny ways and speech. Shane - if you happen to read this I would appreciate an email at mrmac@nxlink.com as I would like to 'speak' about the wood Fae character and speech. Mac

    Outstanding tiny story with a gigantic twist - love it!!!!!!!!
  • A Gift From A Ghost on Aug. 18, 2016

    Another tiny story with lovely openness…….. great stuff! Let me know if you ever want to add a free (or more) images to your stories. I once did a picture of my granddaughter as a ghost setting beside my old outhouse. Another daughter named if Simplicities of a Past Life.
  • The Ouija Board Lie Detector on Aug. 18, 2016

    O my… Mr V; this one is truly great and what a fantastic ending! Can give one the shivers.
  • Voyage To Mars on Aug. 18, 2016

    The old ….. been there; done that but with a delightful twist.
  • Why Infinity Was Invented on Aug. 18, 2016

    O so many examples to the……… TRUTH……..
  • Brimstone and the Companions of Althea. on Aug. 29, 2016

    A great 9 book series by the author of the Peacekeeper series. This Brimstone and the Companions of Althea book 1 is the first of a 9 book series that is built around nonstop action. It is based on actual characters from several players of an online game. A note of caution - the lead in material you read is necessary to set the stage for the events that transpire in the series. That said - the remaining 3/4 is pure ACTION! I suggest the reader peruse the first portion with care as some helps in understanding the storyline.
  • Cyber Doomsday on Oct. 07, 2016

    While not my usual gender for reading, when I ran across it on a Craig's List ad, I decided to skim the sample offered. Glad I did. Being an old codger, (73), I sometimes, slightly agree with some doomsayers in particular in that we, and the world, have become much too dependent on our technology. The current TV ad about a family losing their internet certainly struck a chord! Ever forgot and left you phone somewhere???? Garth's characters in the book are also reasonable realistic without being 'Chicken Little'. Their take on politicians is also, in good part, my take on most of the politicians; esp. ones now. With his permission, I put a small portion of the dialogue here: - the amount of money being spent by big business is that usually when a business lays out that kind of money, they will expect something in return. They don't just hand out that kind of money for no reason. There are usually strings attached. It is a recipe for corruption. - I've often wondered why someone spends a great deal of his or her money to be elected to a political position…….have you ever… even briefly wondered? The book is riveting, well written tho occasionally 'long winded'. Do I recommend this book -- YES! I especially liked how he did the doom part - something I NEVER envisioned; but now that he's brought it to light - maybe, just maybe possible. Tho I tend to think - possibly a two edged sword? Definitely unique 'hack'!
  • Keelic and the Space Pirates on Nov. 13, 2016

    At first blush, I almost - almost…, quit reading as it seemed more along the line of a novel a pre-teen would enjoy. At 73, I've read a lot of science fiction (and fantasy) and find more enjoyment in a faster passed story. However, I managed to persevere and found the pace quickened, especially around the 70percent mark. Overall I moderately enjoyed this free book enough that I am interested in reading the sequel - Alexander, if you happen to read this review please email me ( mrmac@nxlink.com ) when it is published or if you could use a free image or two for the cover or inside. Again - a good read for pre-teen to about 15 - especially ones that enjoy science fiction.
  • Little Blue Car on Nov. 13, 2016

    Morning - or whatever it is there…… I was intrigued when I read the Little Blue Car's review. Frankly the review caused me to download and read the story. The review was correct in it being short but I found it very illuminating and perfect. Well done - later, after I read your other free ones I will 'hit' it with a 5 review. Let me know, one newbie to another, should you ever need free images - I own thousands. Mac
  • Babble and Brook on Nov. 13, 2016

    An interesting very short story... sad too in a way and leaves one to contemplate ... something; but not sure what
  • Piper on Nov. 13, 2016

    It's a short story Jairaj not a book. Tho short it is a most enlightening story - well done C.L !! I do agree on one thing - put them into a collection at 99 cents. They are interesting enough to show life as it sometimes really is . Mac
  • First Hunt on Nov. 13, 2016

    Now that's what I call a FIRST hunt !!!!!
  • The Bestest Christmas Ever on Nov. 13, 2016

    At first blush, it seems strange but the ending I found to be MOST gratifying. Even to this 73 year old being! Especially these days!
