Dennis McNally was raised in a military family and graduated high school in Maine. He received his Masters and Ph.D. in American History at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His Ph.D. dissertation, a biography of Jack Kerouac, was published by Random House in 1979 as Desolate Angel: Jack Kerouac, the Beat Generation, and America.

In pursuit of his next book, a history of the Grateful Dead, he settled in San Francisco in 1977, where he has made his home ever since. He began work on the Dead history in 1980 at the invitation of Jerry Garcia, and in 1984 the Dead hired him as their publicist, a position he held for 25 years. The obligations of the job required him to put the book on hold, and he only resumed it in 1997, after the death of Garcia. A Long Strange Trip: The History of the Grateful Dead was published in 2002, to much critical and commercial success. McNally is currently working on this third book. He has been married to Susana Millman, a photographer and graphic designer, for over 15 years. They have one daughter, Season Ray. He is a board member of Music in Schools Today, as well as the Northern California chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.
