Storm has signed two psychological thrillers from bestselling author Elena Wilkes. Publisher Kathryn Taussig acquired World rights, including audio and Film and Television, directly from the author. The first book, The Son, will publish in September 2023, followed by a second in January 2024.

In The Son, things are looking up for Beth and her teenage son Joe after she marries Drew, a handsome local police officer. But when she picks up a strange phone call on Drew’s mobile from a distraught woman, saying someone has been trying to kill her, Beth’s family life begins to spiral.

Elena says,

“Wow! Who wouldn’t want to work with Storm with their combined track record? Really, really excited to get my mad, bad, and dangerous to know characters out there and see where Storm can take them. Can’t wait!”

Kathryn says,

I was really drawn into The Son from the first page. Elena is not only an excellent writer, she’s also a master plotter and this book has twist after twist you never see coming. I’ve read a lot of psychological thrillers and this one stuck with me long after I finished it. I’m delighted that Elena has agreed to be part of the Storm list.”

To learn more about Elena, you can find her on twitter and Facebook.
