Read full description of the books:
Peter Principle, but here's a new one: Patrick's Law. Patrick's Law, which deserves at least equal space in the index of life, states that in large families, the youngest gets the shortest end of the stick. The youngest has certain traits that can last to adulthood: "His clothing will mark him and his position in the family strata. His socks will droop because of a lack of elasticity brought on by age and the larger ankles of his brothers. The youngest will generally never hold an original opinion for fear of being informed he is a klutz by at least one of his brothers. He will always be referred to as So-and-So's little brother and will NEVER (a) get the Sunday funnies first, (b) go anywhere without telling at least two persons where he is going, or (c) be able to read a comic while seated on the family's only commode." Patrick's Corner is a collection of stories about growing up after World War II in a world where family life, neighborhood interdependence, and nurturing environments were the norm. The author describes how one family's steadfast devotion to each other and their foundation of moral values helped them surmount the challenges of poverty. Told with the sensitivity of the "baby of the family," this nostalgic reminiscence is full of warmth, love, growing pains, and the struggles for survival. The author writes about his "comin' up" as the youngest of six sons in an Irish Catholic family headed by a widowed mother. Like most brothers, the Patrick boys fought, but more often they were friends who talked, laughed, and shared their growing pains with each other. Even if you have never had to wear hand-me-down clothes or been referred to as So-and-So's little brother or sister, these stories are sure to touch your heart. Sean Patrick, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, lives in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where he teaches creative writing at Fayetteville Technical Community College. He has operated two teen group homes, served as an administrator of a religious education program at his church, and, along with his wife, has given lectures on parenting skills. He has written for Catholic Digest and has also been published in The Liguorian.

Read information about the authorHi,
I'm Sean, and I believe that people have far more potential than they give themselves credit for. I believe that everyone can find their calling, achieve success and happiness, and feel in control of their fate.
Through my writing, I hope to educate and inspire, to convince people to look at themselves and the world a little differently, and to be able to use these insights to improve not only their lives, but the lives of everyone they touch as well.
If that floats your boat, I think you'll like my work, and I hope you find it helpful.
