In this installment of our Spotlight Sunday Series we feature Gini Koch who many of you may know from the various articles she has written for us as well as our interviews about her wildly fabulous Alien / Katherine “Kitty” Katt series of books from DAW Books.
I know some may be saying we are giving a lot of coverage to Gini and yes, yes we are. Nobody at TG Geeks gets paid and Gini has been an exceptional friend and has provided us regular content to publish so, it only makes sense that we should give her some free advertising. In Fact, Gini was our very first interview (Episode 14 – see below for link) and has been our most frequent interviewee. She (and Steve) has even been in our home studio with us for the infamous “wine episode”.
For those of you who may be asking, “Who is this Gini Koch person?” Well, where to start; first, her name is Gini (pronounced like I Dream of Jeanie) Koch (pronounced with a ch sound on the end not a k sound) 😉 and the following is from her bio:
Gini Koch writes the fast, fresh and funny Alien/Katherine “Kitty” Katt series for DAW Books, the Necropolis Enforcement Files, and the Martian Alliance Chronicles. She also has a humor collection, Random Musings from the Funny Girl. As G.J. Koch she writes the Alexander Outland series and she’s made the most of multiple personality disorder by writing novels, novellas, and novelettes under a variety of other pen names as well, including Anita Ensal, Jemma Chase, A.E. Stanton, and J.C. Koch. She also has stories featured in a variety of excellent anthologies, available now and upcoming, writing as Gini Koch, Anita Ensal, Jemma Chase, and J.C. Koch. Reach her via: www.ginikoch.com
Second, Gini is one of our closest friends and an all around witty, intelligent, passionate, and supportive mentor and collaborator to most everyone she comes in contact with. Gini always has a smile (sometimes a big laugh) and a hug ready for those who stop by her booth at various conventions and book signings around the country.
Besides being a prolific author, Gini also hosts a number of panels at cons about writing and “other” topics (you have to be there) where she gets to show off her knowledge of writing and all things pop culture.
When not writing her Alien series Gini also writes short stories for anthologies and writes movie reviews for us here at TG Geeks (precipitated by the fact she moved to Atlanta, home of Turner Classic Movies). She also spends time with her dogs and cats as well as her husband in their new digs.
