Claire Matturro

Claire Hamner Matturro has been a newspaper reporter, a lawyer, and taught at Florida State University College of Law. She spent one long, cold winter in Oregon as a visiting professor of legal writing at the University of Oregon School of Law. But her love of storytelling trumped the legal world, and Claire turned to writing fiction. Her books are: Skinny-Dipping (a BookSense pick, Romantic Times’ Best First Mystery, and nominated for a Barry Award); Wildcat Wine (nominated for a Georgia Writer of the Year Award); Bone Valley and Sweetheart Deal (winner of Romantic Times’ Toby Bromberg Award for Most Humorous Mystery), all published by William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishing. Claire remains active in writers’ groups and regularly contributes to Southern Literary Review. Look for her newest book, Trouble in Tallahassee, coming in September 2017.
