Storm Literary Agency

Boutique literary agency representing quality children's literature from exceptional authors and illustrators

First, there was a  teacher who loved books almost as much as she loved little children. Then, there was an artist who loved pirates, almost as much as he loved cats. As it turns out, that artist could also write, and that teacher loved the pirate stories he wrote. And she shared those stories with the children she taught. The children loved the pirate stories; they also loved the cats. They wanted more stories with pirates and cats. They also wanted an adventure! And the stories gave them so many adventures! And that is that: Storm Literary Agency came about because it needed to. The children requested it. And so did the cats. 

Storm Literary Agency welcomes submissions from unique and talented authors and illustrators, those who are not afraid to embrace their capacity to teach, to entertain, to engage and to honor young people who, hopefully, will be changed by the work represented here.

Rachel was sent to the principal’s office in grade three for using the word ‘distinguished’ in a creative writing task. From that moment, words became her passion – writing them, speaking them. Weirdly, writing as a profession never crossed her mind, until four years ago when no other vocation made sense.

Rachel worked for ABC and BBC Local Radio as producer, journalist, and presenter for many years. As her family expanded, she worked as a copywriter and voice-over artist (her walk-in-closet was her studio).

In 2012, Rachel lost her youngest child Hamish. The words came pouring out of her and they refuse to cease. Her first picture book, Finn’s Feather (Enchanted Lion, 2017) is in honor of Hamish and deals with the important topic of grief.

Rachel is a prolific picture book writer and she’s committed to writing stories that delight, comfort and give children wonderful dreams. Fortunately for her, she has four children to inspire them and try them out on (best focus group ever).

Rachel lives in Queensland, Australia with her family and can often be found in her local café with a cappuccino and a laptop. Rachel is a proud member of SCBWI.
