Sculpture of the 1897 UFO Crash in Aurora, Texas

Space alien buried in Aurora, Texas cemetery? Yesterday, I blogged about a very strange incident: the 1897 UFO crash in Aurora, Texas.  According to a newspaper article published by the Dallas News in April of 1897, a cigar-shaped object crashed in a farmer’s field, an alien body was found in the debris, and this little humanoid was buried in the local cemetery. (For a detailed account of this incident, along with a photo of the space alien’s headstone, visit: New Headstone for Aurora, Texas UFO Crash Space Alien Grave.)  New Aurora, Texas UFO Sculpture So today, I want to share…

New Headstone for Aurora, Texas UFO Crash Space Alien Grave

50 Years before The Roswell Incident The following is an adapted excerpt from Unexpected Texas, my quirky travel guide to offbeat and overlooked day trips near Dallas and Fort Worth: You’ve probably heard of the alleged spaceship crash from 1947 that took place in the desert of New Mexico. Known as “The Roswell Incident” this is arguably the most famous case in UFO history. Yet here in Texas, there exists an alleged spaceship crash – complete with an alien body – which took place 50 years earlier! So imagine how excited I was to find out that I live a…

Photo Essay: UFO Themed Town of Roswell, New Mexico

OK, so it was actually more of a roadtrip through Roswell than a roadtrip to Roswell, New Mexico, but I am glad we stopped by because I made two startling discoveries: The singer John Denver hails from Roswell, New Mexico. (Gasp! Perhaps his ultralight aircraft was reverse engineered?) New Mexican style Mexican food is quite different than the Tex Mex we get here in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex. I didn’t spot any UFOS in the sky, but shop windows and signs featured aliens galore: For those who don’t know, Roswell’s main claim to fame is that in 1947…

UFO Shaped McDonald’s in Roswell, New Mexico

McDonald’s Worth a Road Trip Detour I usually avoid McDonald’s restaurants on road trips, simply because I want to taste local flavors and support small, non-franchised family restaurants whenever possible. Plus, we all know what the menu is like, and if we’re really craving one of their burgers, we can always get one at home. Alien Themed McDonald’s Address That said, if you ever travel through Roswell, New Mexico there is one McDonald’s fast food restaurant worth visiting, not for the food, but for the architecture: this particular McD’s looks like a flying saucer! Here’s the address for the alien-themed…

#IWSG Meeting Donna Latham, Playwright & Kindred Spirit

A pleasant side effect to writing Back in November, the IWSG writing question of the month was “What is your favorite aspect of being a writer?” I didn’t see the question until after I’d written my post, but it really got me thinking… So here’s my answer: *drum roll, please* After much thought, I’d have to say my favorite thing about writing is the wonderful friendships it has brought me – first through Twitter, and later through this blog and the various books I’ve published. While making friends was not my main goal for writing, it has come as a very…
