Oh, THOSE people!


“There's a village in my computer - friends, fans, readers, and colleagues. It's a populous, sometimes chaotic little burg always bustling with news, gossip, opinions and potential excitement.” – Lisa Unger

Born in Connecticut on this date in 1970, Unger spent her elementary school years in The Netherlands before returning to the U.S., and eventually moving to New York City where she worked in publishing for 10 years before diving into a full-time and award-winning writing career.   

Today she is a New York Times and internationally bestselling author of 15 novels, including her latest psychological thriller The Red Hunter.    Her books are out in 26 languages, have sold millions of copies and been named “Best of the Year” or top picks by the Today show, Good Morning America, Entertainment Weekly, Goodreads, and Amazon.com, just to name a few.

Also a successful essayist, her writings appear regularly in places like the New York Times and Wall Street Journal or with her narrating on National Public Radio. Unger, whose thriller In The Blood, won The Silver Anvil Award for crime writing, says she loves writing just to see where each story is going to take her.   “I write for the same reason I read,” she said,  “to find out what's going to happen."  
                                            “I don't think of my characters as people I create, I think of them more as people I have met and whom I'm exploring on the page. I don't actually think of myself as having 'created' any of these people.”
