Luthiea Wu is a professional writer hailing from sunny Singapore. When not outsmarting deadlines or battling Singapore's tropical climate, Luthiea dreams, plots and writes light fantasy. She roots for the female underdog, and enjoys writing female-centric tales that are strangely manga in nature. On a clear cloudless day, her stories can be found at Expanded Horizons, Wawa in Kids World, and Montage Edition.
And when it's time for her to show other inexperienced writers/artists the way, she leaves tantalising clues at the Aspiring Mangaka & Writers Club blog (http://amwc.wordpress.com).

Rainy skies is a fun read. It comes across like reading manga, quite minimalistic in words but more than making up for it with fast action, stylishly punchy dialogue and interesting characters, each with their own abilities. Rain is the female lead with magical powers and a ton of emotional baggage to sort out. Her two sidekicks, Thiea and Yvi, are exact opposites, one almost masculine in her fighting prowess and the other a sultry man-eater. The trio are bounty-hunters running away from the Law. Think Legolas of Lord of the Rings for the males, Asian versions of Charlies' Angels for the sleek, kickbutt females, and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon type of backdrop and you are ready for Rainy Skies. I can't wait for its sequel.
