Four-times Amazon Best-selling author, M.A.R. Unger found her inspiration for the forensic Matti James Mystery Series in a local Las Vegas radio newscast about bones discovered at a construction site. She has gone on to write stand-alone mysteries and thrillers set the the Las Vegas Valley and abroad.

Originally from New Jersey, she studied at the University of Miami and can't remember a time when she wasn't writing. "I wrote economic reports for a living, but didn't have fun writing until I started novels." 

Her interests include genealogy, history, photography, and art. She's also an avid researcher, especially with regard to forensics, police procedures, and settings used in her novels.  She is a member of Anthem Authors writers' group.
