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.

Sarah Floyd was born in Carmel Highlands, California, on the edge of Big Sur where she and her friends explored, built forts, and acted out adventure stories in the woods. She loved to read, especially her older brother and sister’s comic books, and she wrote her first picture book when she was six. Her family moved to San Francisco, and then to Kuala Lumpur—she went to five different elementary schools, made new friends, and introduced them to her best books.   

She never forgot the coastal woods and mountains of her first home. When she was a junior in college she enrolled in a summer program with the National Outdoor Leadership School where she learned to navigate without a compass, climb rock cliffs, forage for food, and create tools and shelter to survive in the wilderness. Sarah loves the rugged beauty of the woods, but she is equally enamored with fine art, theater, and ballet—all elements that find their way into her picture books and middle grade novels.

Recent publications include an Upper MG novel, Butterfly Girl (Clear Fork Publishing, Spring 2019), and a picture book, Ten Clever Ninjas (Clear Fork Publishing, Spring 2019).

Sarah enjoys helping kids become strong, happy readers and has worked for many years as a reading coach for first graders. She has a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies and is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Sarah lives in Florida with her husband and teenage son.
