Hey there! I’m Katherine “Kitty” Katt and I narrate the true-life series about the aliens from Alpha Centauri who live amongst us. I share what it’s like to live and work among the most gorgeous people on Earth, who also have nifty talents like hyperspeed, super-strength, empathic skills, and the ability to read people from their pictures, to name only some of the cool stuff A-Cs can do.
I started out as a marketing manager. Then a parasitic superbeing hit some dude in front of me and turned him into a big fugly monster. I took him out, the boys from Alpha Centauri showed up and took me to Area 51, and my new life as the world’s best accidental badass began.
Now, as the Head of Airborne for Centaurion Division, I spend my days protecting the Earth from space monsters, evil politicians, crazed megalomaniacs, and anti-alien conspirators trying to take over and destroy everyone. (Trust me, the politicians are the worst, by far.)
In between that, I get to have a lot of great sex with my A-C significant other, Jeff Martini, who redefines the terms “great kisser”, “gorgeous”, and “godlike in bed”. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.
I entered this contest because I want to show that a regular gal can challenge all the otherworldly types and triumph, since I do it every day anyway. I’m good with any weapon out there, and if no “normal” weapon is around, I’ll figure out how to take something innocuous — like a pen, an iPod, or a can of hairspray — and make it into the right weapon for the situation. I trained in track and field under the most sadistic coaches in history, and I practice Kung Fu regularly, meaning I’m in shape and have great stamina, as well as “normal” kick butt options available to me. I think I can win because I can guarantee I can come up with something that will shock and surprise my opponent, while also attacking their hidden weakness, every time.
So, I’m fighting for everyone who doesn’t have werewolf blood, or wings, or whatever. Regular girls, let’s show these otherworldly types how we do things downtown and kick some serious butt!
Gini Koch lives in the American Southwest, works her butt off (sadly, not literally) by day, and writes by night with the rest of the beautiful people, while she listens to a lot of rock ‘n’ roll, particularly Aerosmith, at all times.
Her interests include seeing how often she can ask, “So, have I told you about this plot twist yet?” of her husband before he goes insane, going to rock concerts with her daughter, and training her pets to ‘bring it’. Gini started writing to have an excuse to stay up late playing on the computer while listening to music and mooning over pictures of Steven Tyler and Joe Perry.
Now she’s expanded her thinking — she moons over a wide variety of hunks in order to keep the visual creative juices flowing. So to speak.

About the Book:
Super-Being Exterminator Kitty Katt and the Alpha Centaurian she loves, Jeff Martini, should be finalizing their wedding plans. But that was before she discovers Jeff is in line to become Emperor back on his home world. Kitty knows she is everything a royal family wouldn’t approve of, and is bracing herself for the worst. As it turns out, the royal family is just the beginning. Especially when extraterrestrial Amazonian terrorists are determined to start and end Kitty and Jeff’s nuptial festivities with a bang.
