SAVING LUCY: A Girl, A Bike, A Street Dog - Ishbel Holmes

Ishbel Holmes is currently writing SAVING LUCY, the story of the street dog that befriended her when she was cycling through Turkey. Rescuing Lucy from attacking dogs, she cycled with her to the Syrian border.

The book will be published later in 2018 by Velo Press in North America and Bradt Travel Guides in the UK. Fran Gilhooley is writing the film script of the story. Translation rights are held by Velo.

Scottish-Iranian author Ishbel has cycled 20 countries solo and rescues street animals as she pedals. She started writing the book in Brazil.

Ishbel, who had difficult experiences as a teenager in foster care, is an ambassador for women and young people.
