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.

Annina Luck

 

Swiss-American author/illustrator Annina Luck was born in Mainz, Germany and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. Growing up, she created characters with stories for her little brother and sister and often acted them out with chess pieces, paper dolls or trains and cars. Her favorite books were The Thirteen Clocks by James Thurber, D’Aulaires Book of Greek Myths, and all of the Tintin and Asterix books.       

Now, her picture book and middle grade stories are also inspired by her love of folklore and history—especially Byzantine and Tudor history. In her illustrations, she dreams up a new techniques for each project, creating textures with awl or embossing tools and combining watercolors with collage and embossed gold foils. She often adds the line work digitally along with flourishes and extra details.

Annina currently serves as the Illustrator Coordinator for the Long Island chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and is also a member of he Historical Novel Society (HNS),  Long Island Children’s Writers and Illustrators (LICWI) and the Huntington Arts Council.
