Amazon Bestselling Author, Alexi Venice, is best known for her Pepper McCallan Series, featuring a corporate lawyer-turned counterterrorism consultant. Pepper travels the world on assignments, fighting both external and internal foes, avenging the death of her son at the hands of terrorists. 

Venice draws on her own experience as a practicing attorney and avid adventurist.  She makes it a point to attempt the same activities as Pepper McCallan, including flying the Eclipse jet, wake boarding, shooting assault rifles and boxing in the ring.  Venice also is the president of her beloved Hot Mama Water Ski Club. 

In 2017, Venice released BOURBON CHASE, THE SAN FRANCISCO MYSTERY SERIES, BOOK 1, featuring Dr. Jen Dawson, D.A. Amanda Hawthorne and Detective Tommy Vietti. BOURBON CHASE was the #1 New Release on Amazon.  Venice is continuing with the series, recently releasing AMANDA'S DRAGONFLY, THE SAN FRANCISCO MYSTERY SERIES, BOOK 2.

Venice has gained a reputation for a fast-paced writing style, entertaining loyal readers with an ensemble of characters who struggle through darkness to experience the passion and love that life has to offer.

Venice, who used to live in San Francisco, now spends most of her time in Wisconsin--when she isn't researching book plots in her favorite destinations.
