Eric Martin has been a journalist and a social worker and has lived in Maine, Texas and North Carolina. While attending Duke University, he worked on a documentary project about Mexican migrant workers in the South. Martin is also a recipient of a Michener fellowship and an American Short Fiction fellowship.

Martin's first novel, "Luck" published by W.W. Norton, draws on his documentary-making experience. He affectingly details a young college student's crusade to help abused Mexican migrant workers in his tobacco farming hometown. When the protagonist falls in love with the daughter of his father's Mexican employee, long-mounting tensions erupt into disaster.
