Today, we will learn more about the woman behind the Little Cabbagehead Books, Luthie M West.
Luthie M West: Jack of Many Trades
Author Luthie M West considers herself as a Jack of All Trades. Aside from her literary accomplishments, Luthie is also a teacher. She is also an actor and a director. Art is also one of her interests.
Luthie M West is also the creator of Little Cabbagehead Books. Luthie’s zest for life has earned her the monicker ”the fun one” because she is always full of life and loves going to parties and telling stories she invented on the spot. Luthie is also known for her passion for stage performance!
Throughout her life, Luthie has had an impressive list of work experiences and adventures. Luthie has worked as are animal trainer, dog groomer, lithographer, dental technician, and singer. She also once held jobs as a receptionist and waitress. Her vast experiences with ordinary jobs have enabled her to encounter many people, and these encounters somehow find their way into her stories. These experiences are also part of her research, and they help her produce excellent materials. There was even a time when Luthie, a fantasy author, took a class in Amazare, the Italian martial art of sword fighting. There she learned how to wield a sword. Luthie also took time to study boatbuilding from discussions with a professional boat builder. These lessons helped her wrote her latest fantasy novel, Spiritdancer: The Blade of Baresi.
Luthie is also a gamer and plays online RPG or role-playing games. She started playing after her children were grown. For Luthie, playing video games is the easiest way to be invited to parties, virtual ones.
Despite her many interests, Luthie’s number one passion is still storytelling. So she decided to make her stories available to a broader audience through her books.
