Author Monica Holloway and I have never actually met, but when I was working on my memoir, writer friends who knew her insisted I read her book, Driving With Dead People,
"You have to read Monica's book!"
"You have to meet Monica!" they said.
We both had difficult childhoods. We both have a child on the autism spectrum. Eventually we were introduced on-line. She generously offered to read my manuscript. Months later I took her up on it. She read it and gave me wonderful feedback and valuable advice.
So while we have not met each other physically it feels like we have. We've read each other's stories. She made a generous donation toward Riley's dog, which is a subject near and dear to her heart. Monica's new book is about her son Wills, and how a Golden Retriever named Cowboy changed his young life. Cowboy and Wills is coming out in October, the same month Riley gets her service dog. Kismet?
If you can watch the video promo for Cowboy & Wills, and not get misty, seek professional help. Seriously.
Congrats on your new book Monica. Here's to new beginnings!
I'm tipping a glass of organic wine in your honor.
Big love to you.
