Today, Hugh MacDonald, author of Trapper Boy, talks about his Grey Area inspiration,
Q: Where did you get the idea for your story, "Stillborn"?
Hugh: The idea for "Stillborn" was a memory from my childhood. I remembered hearing what happened to babies who were stillborn. Once I had the first few sentences written, the story took off from there.
I later turned it into a screenplay and made it into a short film.
