Sullivan wrote the first draft of Cape Cod Fun as a baby shower gift for her daughter-in-law nearly five years ago. When her second granddaughter was born, she decided to turn her vision into a beautifully illustrated picture book to inspire a love for Falmouth and Cape Cod in younger generations. “I always knew I’d end up on Cape Cod when I retired,” said Sullivan, who grew up summering there and worked on the Cape as a
tennis instructor and pool attendant during high school and college years. “It is such a beautiful place with so much to offer – from world-class restaurants to beautiful beaches, a vibrant theatre community, and lots of golf courses and sport fun. Anything you can do in a big city; you can do on Cape Cod.”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Eileen Crowley Sullivan is a “washashore”—someone who was not born on the Cape but moved there. She is a year-round resident of Falmouth who spent every summer on the Cape as a child. She and her husband, Billy, used to take their own family to the Cape each summer too. Eileen earned her Doctorate in education. She then taught and worked in education and administration at the higher education level for more than 35 years. She likes to play golf, tennis, pickleball, kayak, as well as walk and read for hours at a local beach in the summer. She is known to host a lobster feast like the one described in the book. In the fall and winter, she loves to curl at the Cape Cod Curling Club. The author loves when her entire family—Brendan; Kim; their daughter, Ruby Joan; Cassie; Dan; their daughter, Hazel Octavia; and their dog, Leo— comes to visit Falmouth and Cape Cod. She also loves it when her sister, nieces, nephews, and their families and children come for their annual summer time fun on Cape Cod.
