Author Interview & Book Giveaway: Dogsled Dreams by Terry Lynn Johnson

Welcome to Author Terry Lynn Johnson!

Terry’s passion for the outdoors evolved while she paddled twelve summers in Quetico Provincial Park as a Canoe Ranger. One winter she worked for a dogsledding company and eighteen huskies followed her home. She was hooked.

Now Terry continues to work in the outdoors and shares her love of adventure through her writing. In her spare time she enjoys kayaking, competitive swimming, and hiking. Occasionally she likes to torture herself in a canoe race.

Her work has been published in many outdoor magazines which can be viewed in the portfolio section.

Terry is a graduate of Winghill school of writing and is a member of the Society of Childrens’ Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) as well as the Outdoor Writers of Canada. She lives in Whitefish Falls, Ontario.

“Demonstrates the bond between mushers and their dogs…” Pam Flowers, author of Alone Across the Arctic.

Twelve-year-old Rebecca dreams of becoming a famous sled dog racer.
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.
