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. However, poetry was my first love." 

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.
