An official spokesperson for Autism Speaks and the National Center for Family Literacy, Ms. Holloway has received widespread praise for her bestselling memoirs:

Cowboy & Wills: A Remarkable Little Boy and the Puppy that Changed His Life


Driving with Dead People

In Cowboy & Wills, Monica Holloway learns that her lovable, brilliant three-year-old son, Wills, has Autism Spectrum Disorder.  When he reaches six, golden retriever Cowboy Carol Lawrence joins the family and the world opens up for the boy in a way his parents hoped for, but never expected.  In Cowboy & Wills, Holloway shares what the family discovered — about devotion, about loyalty and about never giving up.

Driving with Dead People, Ms. Holloway’s first memoir, has been described by Newsweek as “unforgettable” and deemed “irresistible” by the Washington Post. The book chronicles her bizarre, often funny and ultimately terrifying life growing up in a small Midwestern town, an extraordinary real-life tale with a wonderfully observant and resourceful heroine.
