Erin Finnegan is a former award-winning journalist and public relations professional who now writes and makes both wine and trouble in the foothills outside Los Angeles. 

Her novel Luchador was named one of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2016 and also received a PW starred review. Set amid the backdrop of Mexico City's professional lucha libre circuit, Luchador is a story about a young exótico wrestler's search for identity from behind a mask.

Her debut novel Sotto Voce (2014), a story of love and wine, also received a Publishers Weekly starred review, as well as a Foreword Reviews Indiefab Silver Book of the Year award.

A lifelong sports fan, she has had to dive out of the way of flying luchadores at matches in both the U.S. and Mexico.
