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.

Naomi Canale grew up in the Sierra Nevadas where she was often thought of as the long lost sister of the Weasley family, or other fictional characters with wild imaginations and class clown tendencies. 

Naomi has served as Co-Regional Advisor for Nevada SCBWI and has been a member since 2007. She’s helped develop stories for Zoom Entertainment, which is steered by Executive Producer Michael Zoumas. His film credits include such movies as Coraline and Mimic

Naomi now resides in Central Texas with her three boys, a dog and a cat, and is always looking forward to her next adventure. When she’s not writing, she can usually be found with a sketch book or paint brush in hand. She’s been lucky enough to showcase her paintings in many places like Ironstone Vineyards, New York’s Rocking Horse Café, E3 Gallery, and Dreamer’s Café, in downtown Reno. She’s also been published in Direct Art Magazine, My Light Magazine, and SCBWI’s bi-monthly bulletin.
