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.

Having grown up in a creative and loving home between the city of Philadelphia and the rural beautiful New Jersey shoreline, Raven has written poetry since childhood. Her writing has taken her to many adventures – from a career at Atlantic Records in NYC as a songwriter, a greeting card verse writer, and a children’s poet.

Her children’s picture books include Dozy Poems, Cozy Days (available through Background Noise Books), Spinning Circles: Action Poems, Gibber/Animal Acrostics, Shimmer/Songs of Night (Spork), A Star Full of Sky (Daffydowndilly Press) and a 2018 rhyming picture book, My Community (MacLaren-Cochrane). Her book release with illustrator Carina Povarchik, Shimmer, held the honor of Amazon’s #1 Top Hottest Children’s Poetry Book releases.

She writes poetry for a variety of magazines such as Highlights for Children, Ladybug, Stinkwaves, Fun for Kidz, Cricket, Spider, Hello Highlights, High Five, Babybug and Bumples.  Raven’s work is included in a variety of anthologies, and she has received awards for poetry from the SCBWI and Poetry Soup.

A member of SCBWI and ILA, she enjoys presenting children’s writing workshops, visiting schools and libraries. Raven lives in the Hudson Valley with her husband, sweet terrier, Elsie, and their mischievous black cat, Lilac.
