Esther Luttrell, author and business woman, has been called one of America's most effective and entertaining speakers. She has risen out of ashes more than once in her life, and tells about it with candor and grace, inspiring others to realize their own potential.
Born in Daytona Beach, Florida, she is the only child of Leslie and Marjorie Glen Cox. The trio left Daytona when she was three months old, which set the pattern for a travel trend that would last the rest of her life. She attended Florida schools in Ft. Myers, Jacksonville, and Tampa. In California she went to school in Montebello and Whittier. She entered the seventh grade at Burbank Junior High in Houston, Texas and then the family moved back to Tampa where she enrolled at Hillsboro High School. She had attended tenth grade classes for only a week when her father walked off and left her and her mother. Esther quit school to wrap hog jowls in a supermarket.
Despite the lack of a formal education,
Esther is living her dream. Without returning to
school, she went on to participate in a PhD grant
at a major university, became a screenwriter, film
producer and director, and is the author of
15 published books. Her workshops on rebooting,
rebuilding and rejoicing are carved from
personal experience. She is the perfect example
of what being extraordinary is about -
personal triumph, achievements despite the odds,
turning negatives into positives,
and inspiring others to reach their highest potential.
Every mountain she has faced in life has been conquered.She has been executive assistant to the vice president of a major film studio and story consultant to some of the most powerful movie moguls in Hollywood. When history repeated itself, and her husband - like her father years before - walked out, leaving her penniless and without a home, she wrote her first novel based on that experience and turned her life completely around. 15 novels later, she has still never received a letter of rejection from any publisher.
Each success strengthens her resolve to help others realize their full potential, to encourage others to reach as far as imagination and desire will stretch, and to never lose perspective or their sense of humor.
Her most popular talk, Reboot, Rebuild, Rejoice, has been embraced by women's groups and faith-based organizations as a standard for anyone seeking motivation and inspiration.
Audiences are inspired by Esther Luttrell's triumphant story and fortitude. She is an author, business woman, motivational and inspirational speaker.
