Biography

Alec Peche is a murder mystery crime writer. Alec is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, Columbia University, and the University of Florida. She resides in northern California, but has lived in New York City, Green Bay, WI, Pasadena, CA, and Gainesville, FL.
The series is the story of Jill Quint, MD consulting forensic pathologist and her three best friends, each with unique problem-solving skills, bringing justice and solving murder mysteries around the world. When not solving mysteries, Jill operates a vineyard in California. Other characters in the books include boyfriend Nathan Conroy and pets Trixie (Jill's Dalmatian dog) and Arthur (Nathan's grey cat).
VIALS was the first book in the series, published in September 2013, and is set in Northern California and Puerto Rico. It's a story of murder by infection.
The second book, CHOCOLATE DIAMONDS is set in Belgium and the Netherlands. While on vacation, the group of friends becomes embroiled in a murder by nut allergy.
The third book in the series A BRECK DEATH was published in September of 2014. Skiing is the author's favorite winter sport and thus she had to write a murder mystery set in a skiing location.
The fourth book in the series is DEATH ON A GREEN was published in January of 2015. It's a story of murder on the golf course in Green Bay, WI.
A fifth book is my current work in progress. A TAXING DEATH will be published in the spring of 2015. It's a story of murder by electrocution.
The concepts for books six and seven have been created. Book six will be a murder mystery set in Dallas, TX, and book seven will be set somewhere in the UK - I'm leaning toward Wales at the moment.
The books do not need to be read in order.
