Significant Other: Jeff Martini, former Head of Field for Centaurion Division, now Co-Ambassador, super-empath, sexual god

Hey there! I’m Katherine “Kitty” Katt-Martini 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 Four of the Alpha Centauri System showed up and took me to Area 51, and my new life as the world’s best accidental badass began.

I was the Head of Airborne for Centaurion Division for a while, getting to 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.) I married my alien sex god, Jeff, and we had a daughter, Jamie, who’s extra-special, just like her daddy.

And because of Jamie, I’m a little bit extra-special now, myself. I’ve mutated into a sorta-alien — still human (haven’t grown an extra heart — yet!), but with some of the nice bells and whistles, like hyperspeed and faster healing and regeneration. Yeah, I’m Wolverine with Boobs, which is pretty cool, actually. And I’m also kind of like the new Dr. Doolittle. Don’t ask.

And then, the unimaginable happened — Jeff and I got shoved into the roles as the head diplomats for American Centaurion. I know — what were they thinking? I’m still better with a gun, a crazed plan, or running my mouth, but so far, we’re surviving in Washington, D.C. fairly well. I mean, the world’s still here and the buildings are still standing, and, believe me, that hasn’t been a given.

Things are changing even more for us in Alien in the House, but to tell you what would give away the surprises. And we wouldn’t want that. No, we’re here for another reason — to kick butt.

I entered this contest because I fight evil humans and terrifying space monsters for breakfast, and I’m a wife, mother, and career woman. There is, literally, nothing I can’t do. (Well, other than work mazes very well, but I digress…) With the additions of hyperspeed and super-strength to my arsental, combined with faster healing and regeneration, I might get knocked down, but I get right back up again. So other tough girls? I save the world on a daily basis. I know I can take you. Bring it.

About this Book:

Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini have learned the ins and outs of Washington politics, not to mention how to prevail in intergalactic war and foil dangerous plots. But, in the aftermath of Operation Destruction, the Gower girls’ powers are burned out, the entire A-C population has been “outed” as the aliens living on Earth that they are, and, worst of all, ACE is nowhere to be found.

Then murder and mayhem are served up at an important dinner party at the American Centaurion Embassy, and when the dust settles Alpha Team and the Diplomatic Corps have more problems than just a dead Congressman.

Is there a single criminal mastermind—or multiple enemies—behind all the conspiracies that want Kitty dead and the A-Cs gone or co-opted to become the War Division?

The return of the best assassins in the business, the reappearance of two individuals long-presumed dead, Agent Malcolm Buchanan felled by something no one can identify or cure, and new technology that can block even the most powerful empath on Earth … all of this means the game’s officially afoot.

Then Vance Beaumont comes to Kitty with a wild theory that someone is systematically killing off the House of Representatives…

It’s up to Kitty and the rest of the gang to find out what’s really going on and why. But will they be able to stop the killer or killers before the rest of the U.S. House of Representatives become casualties? And will the replacement Representative for New Mexico’s 2nd District, who happens to be Jeff Martini, be the next to die?

    This series is FREAKIN’ AWESOME!!! I discovered them last year and kicked another set of books off my Keeper Shelf to make room for them. Kitty is the perfect heroine: smart, resourceful, and in charge of her life (no matter the circumstances). And, of course, with a passion for Aerosmith that makes her a Rockstar!
