Supernatural Smack Down: Gini Koch’s Katherine “Kitty” Katt (Round 1)

LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE…..

Round 1: Fighting for DFT – Katherine “Kitty” Katt

Katherine “Kitty” Katt vs. Rhiannon

Remember to check out Parajunkee’s View site and choose wisely…tweet #SuperSmack

Name: Katherine “Kitty” Katt

Book Series: The Alien Series, from DAW Books

Job: Superbeing Exterminator, Accidental Badass, Head of Airborne for Centaurion Division

Height: 5’4”

Weight: None of your beeswax

Hair Color: Reddish blonde (unless there’s a cool hair color she feels like trying)

Eye Color: blue

From (Location): Pueblo Caliente, AZ, now residing in Dulce, NM

Significant Other: Jeff Martini, Head of the Field for Centaurion Division, super-empath, sexual god

Signature Move: Extra Hold Hairspray in the face

Secret Weapon: Huge, cheap leather purse that holds everything in the world inside it; makes Kitty’s ability to find the right weapon easier, because that purse has anything she can think of in it at all times

Kill Highlights: Has taken out monsters with extra hold hairspray, a Mont Blanc pen, a Glock .23, Everhold (extra hold hairspray mixed with Everclear), Kung Fu, rock ‘n’ roll, alligators, and extraterrestrial royal pets to name only a few

Enemies: Evil space monsters, lunatic politicians, crazed megalomaniacs, anti-alien conspirators

Favorite Pastime: listening to Aerosmith turned up to 11, having sex with Jeff Martini

Other Facts: Was on track team all through HS and college; somewhere between brown and black belt in Kung Fu; has ability to turn anything at hand into a useful weapon; thinks so far outside the box she may not realize there IS a box; mother is former Mossad and now the head of U.S. anti-terrorism so Kitty comes by the skills genetically.

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!


_______________________________________________________________________________________________

About Gini:

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.

You can visit Gini around the web here: Website | Blog | Twitter | Facebook

Three winners will each receive a copy of Alien in the Family by Gini Koch

Available on April 5, 2011 from DAW Books

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.
