A Little Bit About Dan Kelly the Author
"May you always find a good book to read and the time to enjoy it!"
After spending forty years in the real world of domestic and international banking, my writing activities being largely restricted to business plans, internal memos, advertising copy, news releases and speeches, I decided I had had enough of the real world and made up my mind to pursue something I’ve wanted to do for quite a while, immerse myself in the world of make believe just for the sheer joy of letting my imagination and creative juices run wild.
Except for the occasional humorous ode for the enjoyment of family, friends and colleagues, I never had the time to indulge the more fanciful side of my nature, but since July 2007 I’ve made great progress in atoning for that neglect. My Irish sense of humor coupled with my experience in dealing with a broad spectrum of people from all walks of life and social status are proving to be a wonderful reservoir of inspiration for me in character and story development.
Celestial Capers, Casino Capers, Computer Capers, Caribbean Capers, Carat Capers, Calling Card Capers and Cabernet Capers are the products of my first seven mental voyages into the realm of make believe and I hope you will be as delighted as I was to make these trips. I am currently pondering over what my eighth safari into the relatively unexplored dimensions of my imagination should be and am hoping I will find the expedition as thoroughly enjoyable as my first seven tours. I hope you will too.

Calling Card Capers
Calling Card Capers is a fascinating mixture of suspense, adventure, intrigue, revenge, violence, courage, humor and romance all woven into a captivating tale with an ironic climax that the reader will find very hard to put down. Like any good action novel it has good butting heads with evil, but in an unusual way. It pits the father a of a son KIA against the system with horrific results.
Carat Capers is a jewel of a story, pun intended. It pit’s three very greedy jewelers whose desire for wealth and the power and social status that usually comes with it has them embarking on a well-planned global crime spree to relieve their victims of very rare and valuable precious gems against a NYPD Detective Lieutenant and a Private Investigator who have teamed up to squash it.

Casino Capers is a tale about two adversaries, Jacob "Red" Borman and Carl "The Chameleon" Carducci that take place in the world of casino gambling. Red manages casinos and The Chameleon rips them off, but only the ones Red manages and Red has no idea why he's attracting this kind of attention. It's a fascinating story filled with suspense and danger and has an unbelievable ending.
Computer Capers is a story about seven egotistical businessmen who believe America is headed down to bottom rung status in the global community and are determined to restore America’s to its premier status and willing to do some awful things to do that. A retired army general, Hank Aldrich, is just as determined to stop them and its edge of the seat reading until the last page is turned.
