She’s an inventive but self-doubting musher who tackles blinding blizzards, wild animal attacks, puppy training, and flying poo missiles. All of her challenges though, seem easier than living up to the dogs’ trust in her abilities.
Rebecca runs her huskies along the crisp trails near Thunder Bay, Ontario, where northern lights flare and dangerous beavers lurk.
Through the bond she shares with the dogs, Rebecca learns that hard work, dedication and living in the moment bring their own rewards.
Dogsled Dreams took about a month to write. It was quite fun to do because I was telling the story about my actual sled dogs.
The manuscript needed many revisions after that. I may have done four or five complete revisions. Then I began to submit it. After thirteen rejections, I took it back and rewrote the first chapter. It was accepted right away after that in October 2009. Then I worked with an editor and completed more revisions. After that, came the copy edits. All that took about six months. So from the moment I started it to the day it was published, was about a year and a half, which is very quick in publishing time.
