About the Author
Southern California native Erin Mahoney Harris loves to walk, yet she's lived most of her life in areas that wouldn't typically be considered pedestrian friendly. Undaunted, she makes it a point to hoof it whenever possible. She finds walking to be meditative, invigorating and almost always rewarding, as there are so many fascinating features and landmarks in Los Angeles that are easy to miss when whizzing by in a car.
Erin is also the founder and editor of ChillOutLA.com, a guide to health, beauty and relaxation deals in Los Angeles. She currently lives in the Hollywood Hills with her husband and her Golden Retriever/Chow mix, both of whom patiently accompanied her on many of the walks featured in Walking LA.
