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.

Rebecca Mitchel loves children, books, and art.  In addition to raising three children, Rebecca ran her own preschool, and taught there for thirteen years. Since then, Rebecca has continued to shape the lives of young children. She implemented, led, and taught an after-school program for elementary schools. During that time, she also taught continuing education classes for childcare teachers through the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. A book lover, Rebecca was also president of Friends of the Library (Woodward, Oklahoma) for two years and president of the Woodward Public Library for sixteen years.

Rebecca's other experiences include organizing family trips to museums from New York City to Los Angeles and everywhere in between. She also enjoyed museum field trips with her own children’s classes as well as with the preschoolers in her care. 

Additionally, Rebecca taught the after-school art classes for the Museum of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, where she developed her own curriculum based on the museum’s exhibits. The total of these experiences provided her the credentials to take on her exciting debut series: MUSEUM GUIDES FOR CURIOUS CHILDREN: CONNECTING PRESCHOOLERS WITH ART.

When Rebecca’s grandsons were born, she joined her family in Southern California, where she has lived for the last ten years. The move allowed her to continue to indulge her interests in storybooks, art, and museum experiences.

Rebecca holds a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and completed three years of study in Child Development from Texas Tech University.
