Luthor is one of my greatest accomplishments. Aside from the Serpenteens series, it is the work I am most proud of.
When I first began writing the book, I had envisioned a story about a deformed person who was the product of a brother and sister pairing, and would go on a horrifying killing rampage.
But as I wrote the story, and when the character of Luthor himself began to materialize, it took on a life of its own. The book went in a completely different direction. It went from a book of shear horror, to a tale of a sad and lost boy who simply wanted to be normal.
Many who have read the book have a difficult time with the abuse the children suffer from their father, Garvin. The character Garvin is a horrible person, it's true, but that evil is what I had originally planned on being the soul of Luthor. (Garvin is loosely based on my own personal hell I suffered at the hand of my step-mother.)
But aside from the abuse and violence, there is Luthor. A boy who is kind and loving. Who knows only the world he is forced to live in, and the darkness is holds.
I hope that those of you who have yet to meet Luthor, will take the time to either purchase the paperback or eBook and experience this story for themselves.
