'Star Trek' actress Kate Mulgrew to publish memoir

NEW YORK (AP) — Kate Mulgrew has figured out a way to introduce her two great passions, acting and writing, to each other: She's working on a memoir.

Little, Brown and Company announced a deal Thursday with Mulgrew, the actress known for her roles in "Star Trek: Voyager" and "Ryan's Hope." The 58-year-old Mulgrew will tell the story of being an unmarried mother who gave up her daughter for adoption during the start of her career, her reunion with her daughter in 2001 and "the costs and rewards of a passionate life."

The book is untitled and scheduled to come out in May 2015. Mulgrew also stars in the Netflix series "Orange is the New Black" and has been in such stage productions as "Tea at Five" and "Equus."
