Jacqueline Terrill has released her novel, “The Hunt.”

Terrill, a former resident of Hermitage and the daughter of John and Dorothy Broadbent of Hermitage, attended Cheena’s Beauty Academy and the Shenango Valley School of Business.

Her inspiration for writing began at The Slackwaters Group at Penn State Shenango with authors Gary Vath and Ronald Myers.

She has been working on her novel, which is set in Hermitage and the Allegheny Mountains, since 2013.

It is a contemporary romance, mystery, suspense and small-town thriller.

This is not Terrill’s first book. She also has written a cookbook, “Awesome Traditional Recipes,” which is a compilation of family recipes, and a book with her granddaughter, Kamora Boatwright, “A Day at the Park.”

She is working on her second novel.
