Sam Clark, of Plainfield, has released a mystery novel titled “The Inland Sea: A Mystery” published December 2020 by Rootstock Publishing.
Clark came up with the idea while boating on Keeler Bay in Lake Champlain on the eastern side of South Hero according to his publisher’s website, Rootstock Publishing — Author Sam Clark. The body of water in the title was also inspired by his childhood family retreat on an island in Upper Saranac Lake.
