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.

Gloria grew up in one of the small Ohio towns that line the shores of Lake Erie. The town’s library had been squeezed into the vacant rooms of a crooked old house that was only accessible by way of a damp, spooky tunnel that ran beneath the highway. She spent many days there, especially in the summer, reading as many books as she could. It was no surprise that Gloria grew up to become a librarian.

Gloria loved her job as a children’s librarian. Many times, as she was reading a picture book to the children in Story Hour, she would dream that one day a librarian might read a book to the kids that was written by her. That dream came true with the publication of Ah-Choo!, written with co-author, Lana Wayne Koehler. It’s a perfect Story Hour book.

Ah-Choo! was Gloria’s second book. Her first book, My Underpants are Made from Plants, is a non-fiction eBook on natural resources, written with Vera J. Hurst, and published in an educational database through Schoolwide, Inc.

Gloria’s other books include Violent Video Games and Society, Coping with Sexism and Misogyny, and 21st Century Spaceships.

Gloria has written for anthologies, magazines, and the Children’s Writer’s and Illustrator’s Market. One of her very first publications was a children’s counting song called Five Little Skunks, through Twin Sister’s Productions.

Gloria has been a speaker at libraries and conferences and has taught International Storytelling as an adjunct professor for Ashland College. In 2016, she co-founded a critique editing service, Two-4-One Kid Critiques, with friend and children’s author, Jean Daigneau. Gloria also contributes to the blog, A Song of Six Pens, and is an active member of SCBWI.
