More About the Author

I was a wild child, and I spent as much time outdoors as I could. The rest of the time I spent reading and writing'and running around in my imagination. When I was in elementary school, I "discovered" that my friends and I were really from another planet, sent here as Earth girls to observe the local fauna: i.e., humans. We came from a planet where girls and women had all the power, politically and magically. Men and boys didn't do much! So during recess, my friends and I often went on adventures to save the world. I wrote some of these adventures down, but I was a writer even before then. I used to draw pictures and staple them into books before I could read. And my parents bought me a small printing press, so I created my own books, too. And now I'm all grown up and still writing stories. I love my job.

Just read this book for the joy of reading! It is so great! You will have a tough time not reading it from cover to cover once you start it. The writing style is so darn enjoyable, the characters very real, even the talking crystal skull, Crane! Don't let this one get by you!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you disregard the age of the heroine, you can give this book to your YA readers and they'll enjoy it. Consider it a late bloomer coming of age tale.

Jeanne La Flambeau is the daughter of a famous family of chefs who run a successful French-Mexican restaurant called Oui-Si. Sadly, Jeanne can't really cook and can't even eat in front of people.

When her boyfriend Johnny (also her adopted cousin) steals the ruby scepter that's belonged to her family for years. Jeanne decides to take the painted skull that fits into the scepter and make the recovery herself before she tells her parents the valuable heirloom is missing.

Jeanne's journey allows her to discover her resistance about food and truths about her own family as well as how they fit into the Native American mythos.

The story is well written. There isn't musch world-building for a fantasy, since the author is using New Mexico, Arizona, and Mexico settings as a basis, but the interior connection to the myths is fascinating.

Like every family, the La Flambeaus don't just have a crystal skull, they have more than one skeleton in the closet. All is revealed by the end, setting the kindred on vastly different courses than they'd imagined.

One thing to note is this novel is a reprint. It would have been written vastly different if cell phones were more prevalent as they are today.

I think "Coyote Cowgirl" could have stood just one more editorial pass. The character Miguel gets a hilarious name change in the middle of the novel among other small issues.

The more love you put into your food, the better it is. Too bad more restaurants don't have cooks who do this. Better, to have a cooking helper like Crane.

Coyote Cowgirl is another of Antieau's books on my 'all-time favorites' list (my favorite is The Gaia Websters). She paints a
beautiful portrait of the Southwest, along with good food and a great story. Antieau writes strong, competent women characters, which
makes her books a joy to read.

This is one of my all-time favorites! Interesting plot with lots of fun thrown into the mix. A love story, a ghost story, a recipe book--and a talking crystal skull--what's not to like?

I enjoyed this amazing read for many reasons. First, the characters were extremely likeable or hateable, but still fully developed so you got to know them. Second, this story, though it had a strand of paranormal, was totally believeable. Next, I am environmental sauvy person, and the one story thread of a hazardous threat to the desert was well written without being preachy. Finally, I like a good love story without all the grappling, sweaty sex, and this story provided such a delicacy. Great Story!!!! Great Read!!!!
