As a feature writer and reporter for the LA Times, he traveled the country finding interesting stories that reflected the day’s major issues, and thrived at a paper in the midst of a renaissance. Martinez shared a 1984 Pulitzer Prize for a series on Southern California’s Latino community. He has written a number of books, including “Reflections” and “I’ll be Damned if I’ll Die in Oakland: A Sort of Travel Memoir;” and he’s come to love L.A.
