Our Master Spellcaster
(That just means the author. She won't really cast a spell on you.)
Luthie M West, Jack of all trades ... (Don't read any gender bias into that, please.)
author/artist/actor/director/teacher and creator of Little Cabbagehead Books, has been dubbed "the fun one" by her extended family. Perhaps that is because Luthie enjoys going to parties and telling stories she invents upon the spot or because of her passion for stage performance!
Unusual Combination of Experiences
Among her many past occupations are animal trainer, dog groomer, lithographer, dental technician, singer, all the things listed above and a host of ordinary jobs like receptionist and waitress. Such a variety of undertakings has given her an unusual combination of experiences, many of which find their way into her stories. But Luthie's research takes her even further.
Fantasy Author and Sword Wielder
Besides her children's picture books, Luthie writes early adult fantasy. Her most recently published novel, Spiritdancer: the Blade of Baresi, sent her on an adventure in research. She learned about boat building from discussions with a boat builder and she learned the fatal mistakes of swordplay when she took a class in Amazare, the Italian martial art of sword fighting. She will go to many lengths for realism.
AND a GAMER!!!
After her children were grown, Luthie engaged in online role playing games. It was the easiest way to be invited to parties, virtual ones. She continued telling stories but wanted more. Now her stories are made available to a much wider audience via her books.
Come relax with a good book. Read to your children or to yourself. Disappear into imagined worlds where anything is possible!
Come, come quickly! The adventure awaits!
