Redemption in Dark Places

Publisher's Weekly magazine profiles author Tracy Groot in February's print magazine.

“It takes an imaginative author to find inspiration for a Civil War novel in Captain Kirk. But Tracy Groot, a two time Christy Award winner (Flame of Resistance; Madman) says the seed for her new book, The Sentinels of Andersonville (Tyndale, Jan.), was planted when she channel-surfed past the handsome mug of a young William Shatner in an old movie.

I am a huge Trek fan and thought, "What is Captain Kirk doing in this Victorian-era courtroom drama?"
