A deep and endearing relationship that brought the simplest of earthly joys.
Ben was an inseparable companion at a stage in my life when I was single and in the midst of a high-profile professional tennis career. I invite you to enter into the story and its tapestry of relationships—with my boy Ben, with my aging parents, with the childhood friend I would finally marry, and ultimately with God, who caused all things to work together for good.
Meet the author
My Boy, Ben is David's second book. David is also the host of a nationally-syndicated radio program. A professional tennis player who was once ranked as high as No. 12 in the world, David now lives near where he grew up in Minnesota with his wife, their son, and two Labrador retrievers.
