Who or what really killed the young son of Southern Baptist preacher Gareth Holbright? Where do the sympathies of straight-laced military commander John Herman really lie? What’s behind the cover-up of the closed moon colony? And will commitment-phobic Max and ambitious journalist Tina ever reunite?

The first book in the Cassiopeia Chronicles, The Right Asteroid is set in the early years of the twenty-second century, when human colonies in space have created the equivalent of a new Wild West. Freedom-loving asteroid hunter Max wants nothing more than to have some fun and make enough money to pay off her space ship, in that order. Instead, what she’d thought was her last-chance asteroid turns out to be an alien probe – and Max makes first contact, setting off a chain of events that will change human life on earth, the moon and Mars forever. Along the way, Max joins forces with an unlikely new team of human friends – who find romance, combat corruption, make groundbreaking discoveries and save lives, including the lives of a half-million peaceful, geometry-loving high-tech alien refugees who call themselves the Kurool.
