Did you know that Roswell, New Mexico is less than two hours from the Mescalero Apache Reservation?
When I started thinking about writing my sci-fi, space-adventure romance, I knew I wanted the base to be in New Mexico much like the very real Spaceport America. The deeper I dug the more interesting the story possibilities became.
I don’t want to give too much away, but the Mescalero Apache Indians and the mysteries of Roswell’s UFO activity through the years, both play big roles in Space Cowboys & Indians.
I loved learning about the Apache Indians.
Our heroes and heroine get to enjoy some Apache hospitality as well as wild game meat and chigustei (flat bread). I plan to make some chigustei to try myself. You can find the recipe here Chigustei Recipe if you’d like to make a special treat to enjoy with your reading.
Space Cowboys & Indians lands July 15.

How can the chance of a lifetime go so horribly wrong?
Mining Engineer Cole Hudson signed up for NASA astronaut training, but after washing out short of getting his gold wings, he retreats to Alaska where he stakes out a gold claim. When billionaire entrepreneur Duncan Janson offers him an opportunity to join a mining team on an asteroid, Cole jumps at the chance.
But nothing is as it seems. Former NASA reject and rival classmate, Tessa Hernandez, is also a member of the team, and from the beginning of the mission test flight, things go wrong. They soon discover they’re not the only ones on the asteroid. As they try to escape, they are pulled through a wormhole and back to the early 1800s New Mexico desert where aliens and Apaches may be the least of their problems.
