Mark O'Brien Publishes Book for Children

Martin the Marlin, Written in Verse, Is for Children of All Ages

WESTBROOK, CT--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) -  Mark O'Brien, founder and principal of O'Brien Communications Group, has published his first book for children. Martin the Marlin tells the story of a young boy who wants to buy a goldfish, only to discover he's brought home a marlin, instead. Once he realizes that, he also realizes he'll have to set the marlin free. A tale of love and sadness, redeemed by lasting friendship, it's appropriate for children of all ages, whether having it read to them by an adult or reading it themselves. The book is available from Amazon.

"Martin the Marlin is about the power of dreams and dreaming, as well as the power of friendship," said O'Brien. "I never dreamed of writing and publishing a children's book ... until I did. Then, for the sake of my children and my grandchildren, it was up to me to practice what I preach -- to pursue the dream to the best of my ability. The book is dedicated to my wife, Marcia, who encouraged me at every step."
