Matt Whitten has written TV shows, stage plays, movies and novels.
His new thriller THE NECKLACE just came out, and has been optioned for film by Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way and Cartel Pictures. Lee Child says: "This is as fast and tense as a great thriller should be, but it's full of warmth and humanity too - one small-town woman's quest for the most poignant kind of justice you could imagine. Buy it today and read it tonight!"
Matt has written four mystery novels starring amateur sleuth Jacob Burns. The first novel, BREAKFAST AT MADELINE'S, received the Malice Domestic Award. The Library Journal called BREAKFAST AT MADELINE'S "the perfect antidote for a rainy day." Publishers Weekly, reviewing GRAND DELUSION, said "Witten delights with his charming characters, especially Burns himself." The Romantic Times said, "Told with warmth and wit, STRANGE BEDFELLOWS is a wry story that packs a wallop of an ending." Murder Express called THE KILLING BEE "a fast, witty, thoroughly engrossing novel that I was sorry to see end."
Matt has written for House, Law & Order, Pretty Little Liars, Medium, Homicide, CSI: Miami, Judging Amy, Supernatural, and other shows.
His published plays include The Deal, Washington Square Moves, and The Ties That Bind. They've been produced in theatres all over the world.
His movie DRONES, directed by Rick Rosenthal and starring Matt O'Leary and Eloise Mumford, premiered in 2014 at the London Film Festival, the Austin Film Festival, and the AFI Fest. It's available at Amazon.
Matt and his wife Nancy have two sons, Zack and Jacob.
