The eleventh of twelve children, Luther was born and raised in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. Military service bore him far from home but opened doors to a career in education as teacher, principal, and professor. Upon his retirement, he decided to write about his people–the Appalachians. He currently resides in Chesterfield, Virginia with his wife of forty years, Katy. Short stories of his have won first place at the Tennessee Mountain Writer’s Conference (2011) and honorable mention at the Appalachian Heritage Literary Festival (2014). They have appeared in Still: The Journal, and his poetry has been published in Anthology of Appalachian Writers: Charles Frazier, Volume IX (2017) and In God’s Hands: Inspiration from Top Regional Writers (2017). He has also published in various literary journals. Flutter Press published two of his poetry chapbooks: Appalachian Woman (2017), and Child of Appalachia (2018). Short articles of his have also appeared in the Roanoke Times.
