Although she’s best known for science fiction, paranormal, horror, and fantasy, Gini Koch’s first literary love is mystery and suspense, and her first literary crush, at the tender age of 7, was on Sherlock Holmes. Gini writes the fast, fresh and funny Alien/Katherine “Kitty” Katt series for DAW Books, the Necropolis Enforcement Files series, and the Martian Alliance Chronicles series for Musa Publishing, and as G.J. Koch she writes the Alexander Outland series. Gini’s made the most of multiple personality disorder by writing under a variety of other pen names as well, including Anita Ensal, Jemma Chase, A.E. Stanton, and J. C. Koch. Her dark secret is that pretty much everything she writes has a mystery in it – because mysteries are the spice of literary life.
