What inspired you to write your book?
I first visited Speculator, NY in 1994. I walked around the mountain town and could picture a story, but it took many more visits and time to develop as a writer before it all came together. I kept forming the plot by asking, “What if?” Entrusted came to be after I moved to Ohio. I flipped aspects of my life as an Upstate NY’er who moved to Youngstown and created Jenna as a Youngstown resident who leaves everything and everyone for a job in the Adirondack Mountains. She wants to belong and is afraid of failing. My “what if” is all about Jenna coming into contact with the mountain grocer who is experiencing loss and transition. What if these two are forced together? And Entrusted was born.
