Patrick Kelly lives and works in Austin, Texas.

For most of his career Patrick worked as a finance professional for corporations in the airline and high-tech industries. In 1998 he got his first position as a chief financial officer and has since served as CFO for five different companies, some large and some small.

In 2009, the company Patrick worked for was sold to a larger company, and he pursued a lifelong dream of creative writing. Over the next four years Patrick worked part-time consulting and spent the rest of his time writing.

In the fall of 2011 Patrick began writing Hill Country Greed. After more than a thousand hours of writing and revising, Patrick believes Hill Country Greed will entertain you.

He is now writing a second novel, Hill Country Rage.

C. F. Yetmen is a writer and consultant specializing in architecture and design. She is co-author of The Owner’s Dilemma: Driving Success and Innovation in the Design and Construction Industry and a former publisher of Texas Architect magazine. The Roses Underneath is her first novel.

Synopsis of The Roses Underneath:

It is August 1945 in Wiesbaden, Germany. With the country in ruins, Anna Klein, displaced and separated from her beloved husband, struggles to support herself and her six-year old daughter Amalia. Her job typing forms at the Collecting Point for the US Army’s Monuments Men is the only thing keeping her afloat. Charged with securing Nazi-looted art and rebuilding Germany’s monuments, the Americans are on the hunt for stolen treasures. But after the horrors of the war, Anna wants only to hide from the truth and rebuild a life with her family. When the easy-going American Captain Henry Cooper recruits her as his reluctant translator, the two of them stumble on a mysterious stash of art in a villa outside of town. Cooper’s penchant for breaking the rules capsizes Anna’s tenuous security and propels her into a search for elusive truth and justice in a world where everyone is hiding something. Forced to make a choice, Anna risks what little she has left as she confronts her past and finds the path toward her salvation.

In her debut novel C.F. Yetmen tells a story of loss and reconciliation in a shattered world coming to terms with war and its aftermath.
