Claire Matturro

Award-winning author Claire Hamner Matturro has been a newspaper reporter, a lawyer, and taught at Florida State University College of Law and 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 HarperCollins Publishing, and Trouble in Tallahassee (KaliOka Press 2017). She took a turn to the dark side with Privilege (Moonshine Cove 2019), a legal thriller noir. With The Smuggler's Daughter (Red Adept Publishing 2020), she returns to the Gulf Coast of Florida she knows so well to present a classic mystery/police procedural. Her newest is written with co-author Penny Koepsel, Wayward Girls (Red Adept Publishing Aug. 2021). Claire remains active in writers’ groups and regularly contributes to Southern Literary Review, where she is an assistant editor, and at Compulsive Reader, and Alabama Writers Forum. Visit her at
