Meet Dennis McKay, author of "A Boy From Bethesda".

A Boy From Bethesda

It's Bethesda Maryland back in the day. A heartwarming and ultimately heart-wrenching story of the life of Johnny O’Brien. A natural leader and gifted athlete, ten-year old Johnny’s life is forever altered by a sudden tragedy and an ensuing discovery that haunts him for the remainder of his life. It is a tale told though the elusive lens of time about adventurous youth, lifetime friendships, and a once in a lifetime girl. A Boy From Bethesda interweaves camaraderie and romance and a yearning for the past that will appeal to a wide audience of men and women and young and old.
