Your WORDS create your WORLD.
Make them LOVELY! ...Lutishia
Before entering the literary world, Lutishia spent almost two decades in radio, theater and film. She is a founding board member and former radio personality of KKFI-Radio, a 100,000-watt community radio station still serving the Kansas City metropolitan area. In commercial radio she worked as a news, entertainment and sports editor, covering the Kansas City Chiefs, and as an award-winning radio station's program director.
As an actor she is a founding member of the acclaimed Metropolitan Ebony Theater, and has written, produced and/or starred in several stage and screenplays. Today these passions and skills are channeled through her company LDE Productions, which produces music and videos, and is currently in pre-production for a movie-to-television series based on the Hallelujah novels.
Lutishia’s work has taken her all over the world. Just eight shy of her bucket list to see all fifty states, she has also visited two dozen countries including all of Scandanavia, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, England, Jamaica and Costa Rica. To date, her best thespian gig was a five-month stint in Jerusalem, Israel, where she played the lead character Ruth in the theatrical production Redeemed, the Ruth and Boaz love story, co-starred in several other plays and was one of the troupe's lead singers. She looks forward to more time on the stage and screen, once again in works of her own.
SPIRITUAL LIFE COACH
Lutishia Lovely is a creative artist whose multi-faceted career includes work as an actor, songwriter, playwright, producer, radio personality, magazine editor and author of more than thirty novels. Her unexpected literary journey began with Sex In The Sanctuary, a contemporary fiction work initially published through her own company, Novel Ideas. With three copies left from her modest print run she packed up faith, belief, a little fear and a lot of determination and flew to New York for the 2005 Book Expo America convention, absolutely convinced that she’d get a book deal. Out of the 2,500 companies represented that year, only one person asked for a copy. Turns out that person was the acquisitions editor for Kensington Books. The deal that she’d “prayed, visualized and spoken into existence” was sealed. More than ten years later, she is just hitting her stride.
Lutishia’s titles regularly appear on Amazon and Barnes & Noble bestseller lists. In 2009, she was given a “Best in Books” award by Black Pearls Magazine. Almost a dozen titles from the Hallelujah and Business series were featured selections in Black Expressions Magazine. From 2012 through 2015 new releases for the Hallelujah Series debuted at #1 on the Black Christian News bestseller list, and three books from this series were finalists for RT Book Review's Best Multiculural Fiction. Her books have been featured in several national publications including Publishers Weekly, Romantic Times Book Reviews, USA Today, Juicy, Sheen, The Dallas Morning News and New Pittsburg Courier. Thankful to have creative arts as a full-time career, she gives back in part as a conference workshop presenter, facilitator and panelist at Romance Writers of America, Romantic Times Booklovers Convention, Book Expo America, Black Expo America, the National Book Club Conference and the RSJ Romance Convention.
Professional memberships include Romance Writers of America, the Author's Guild, Diverse Writers & Readers Int'l. and OBS-Organization of Black Screenwriters.
