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.

Suzanne grew up in Northern Ireland where she taught high school Geography for five years. While enjoying a Mediterranean cruise one summer, she fell in love with an officer and a gentleman from the United States of America. Since then, she has travelled the world experiencing countries and cultures firsthand. Her year in a penthouse in Rome was by far the most exciting place to call home!

Suzanne has worked as a middle school special education teacher in Massachusetts; an independent book consultant for Usborne Books in Alabama; and an English communication teacher near Stuttgart, Germany. But it was teaching first graders to read in Colorado that re-ignited her love of picture books. While raising her own two daughters to be readers, she decided to pursue a career in writing. Suzanne loves the fact that no matter where she moves, she can take her story ideas with her.

A member of SCBWI, Julie Hedlund’s 12x12 picture book challenge, and a couple of international critique groups, Suzanne currently resides in south west Texas. A strong supporter of daily reading to children, she is passionate about creating books to be enjoyed by both children and their parents. Suzanne gravitates towards quirky, clever stories with layers.
