Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! I pray you had a bountiful Thanksgiving with family and friends. Today I have the honor of interviewing Rebecca Ondov, who turned her extensive experience as a horseback guide and Ranger into the book Horse Tales from Heaven.
Rebecca, how did you get into writing?
For years I’d been working from the saddle in the Bob Marshall Wilderness of Montana, taking people on horse pack trips. During the winter of 1992 when I was “out of the hills” and working an off-season job, I reached in my mailbox and pulled out a Guideposts magazine. As I thumbed through the issue, an advertisement caught my eye. It said something like, “Win an all-expense paid trip to New Yo rk.” Guideposts was having a writing competition and would fly fifteen winners to New York, where they would be personally tutored by some of the top Christian authors in the world.
God resounded in my spirit, “Write a manuscript and send it in.”
