Erik Olson


Erik Olson grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana, attended college at Georgetown University, and spent five years working in the publishing industry in New York City before earning his law degree at University of California Hastings College of the Law. The inspiration for his first novel, THE BLACK VULTURE, came during his “bar trip” to Peru after law school graduation. He is an attorney in San Francisco, where he lives with his wife, Laura, and their daughter, Rose. When he is not working or with his family, he is likely somewhere playing or watching basketball, or thinking about playing or watching basketball (probably a Golden State Warriors game).
