Meet the Author: Skip Tucker

Friendly fire — or murder? On Sunday, Aug. 11, longtime political aide Skip Tucker discusses his first novel, Pale Blue Light, a historical fiction that dares ask if the shooting of Confederate Lt. Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson was an accident, or if more sinister forces were involved.

“Pale Blue Light” was another, lesser known nickname for Stonewall Jackson. Skip discusses the setting of this Civil War spy thriller, as well as some of the personalities featured.
