Author Lisa Unger gives mystery fans motive for helping hurricane victims
Bestselling thriller author Lisa Unger lives in Pinellas County and shared the fears of Tampa Bay residents as Hurricane Irma threatened devastation.
"My family and I evacuated, we were without power for a few days, but otherwise very lucky," Unger writes in a news release. "Knowing that others were not so fortunate, I started thinking about what I might do to help."
