Meet the Author

T. Patrick Mulroe,Jr. is from Oak Park, IL. During college he found a 'second family' on Cape Cod when he was looking for a place to live. On a cold winter morning he stepped into a church in Hyannis, MA--Saint Frances Xaviar. As he stepped out of the church he saw a sign that read GUESTS. The front door was open. Muriel MacKenzie rented him a room. That night Muriel's oldest daughter informed him that her mother said he resembled her husband, Frances. When he left to go back to Oak Park, IL Muriel told him he would return to Cape Cod because he had 'sand between his toes'--she could tell. For the next several years he divided his time between Oak Park and Cape Cod. When he and his wife were married in Hyannis Port at Saint Andrew's By The Sea Muriel MacKenzie and her family members were there with them. He lives with his wife and five children in Monona, WI. They spend summers on Cape Cod, MA.
-- Christmas comes once a year, but the feelings and emotions surrounding it are often a year in the making. Steeped in tradition, the yearly celebration takes on more importance as families change.

This story came about during the heat of summer while T. Patrick walked his children from swim lessons to various recreational activities. Traveling on foot alone in the scorching heat as he returned to the pool to collect his youngest two the members of the MacCarthy Family began to form in his mind. Their story started to build in his imagintion as he realized that the telling of of this holiday tale would be in the making all year long. For that reason THEN CAME NOVEMBER tracks the MacCarthy Family for an entire year, from December to December.

A photograph hidden in the pocket of a shirt, held close to the heart, became the center of the story. Why was the photograph kept in that pocket? What would happen if it was seen? Who was the photograph of? When had it been taken? How had it come to this--that the only way Catherine McCarthy could be part of her family's holiday celebration be a photograph hidden inside of a pocket?

Cape Cod became the setting as this loud, opinionated, loving, passionate family grew from an idea to the flesh and blood characters spilt upon the pages.As Catherine McCarthy stands outside Maeve MacCarthy's Cape Cod home knowing she is no longer welcome, she remembers the events of the year bringing her to this point--but first there was last Christmas...
