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.

 

I grew up near Buffalo New York in a family chock full of musicians, artists, and crazy people with a love for life. I started drawing as soon as I could hold a crayon and just never stopped. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be an artist when I finally grew up. (I’m still not sure I’ve achieved that “grown up” status yet, and to tell the truth I’m not sure I ever will.) To that end I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Art from Messiah College with a concentration in Drawing and Illustration, and completed coursework from the Tyler School of Art. I worked for nine years as an artist and designer before returning to my first love: children’s book illustration. My experience includes illustrating and authoring children’s books, speaking at schools and teaching illustration at the Performing and Visual Arts magnet school and Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts. I am the Illustrator Coordinator for the SCBWI Maryland/Delaware/West Virginia region. In addition, EB Lewis has been my illustration mentor since October 2013.

I now live in Maryland and enjoy spending time with my husband and four young children, while working as an author/illustrator from my home studio during every spare moment.
