About 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.
Just like the characters from SAND BETWEEN THE TOES who are brought back to Cape Cod in BACK TO THE SHORE, T. Patrick Mulroe, Jr. has been repeatedly drawn back to the spit of sand known as the Cape in his life. His fascination with the area started at an early age when he traveled to Cape Cod, Truro, with a girlfriend who died there in a boating accident. From that point on T. Patrick Mulroe, Jr. has been BACK TO THE SHORE because that first fateful, tragic, trip in his early twenties left him with SAND BETWEEN THE TOES--an irrational at times,unrelenting, irresistible pull that brings him and his family back to the shores of the Cape over and over again, more than likely for the rest of their lives.
