We are over the moon to welcome Sophie Williamson to Storm! Publisher Kathryn Taussig acquired World English rights in ebook, paperback and audio to two fantasy novels by author Sophie Williamson from Marlene Stringer at The Stringer Literary Agency. The first two books in a linked series, Sophie’s books tell the story of Sadie Sadler – a young witch who is called back to her hometown in the north to save her older brother from imprisonment. The only problem? Six years ago, she promised herself to the son and heir of her family’s greatest rivals and, if she returns, she might finally have to honour the deal…

Book one in the series will publish in July 2023, followed by the second book in October.

Sophie says,

“I’m so excited to have two books published with Storm. I love their modern, innovative approach—and from the moment Kathryn suggested I should make my villain love interest ‘even worse’, I knew she was the editor for me!”

Kathryn says,

“I absolutely love Sophie’s writing, and even on a second and third read I find myself laughing, gasping and desperate to know what happens next. I’m so glad that Sophie is bringing these books to Storm and I’m totally thrilled to be the one publishing them.”

For more information on Sophie, you can find her on twitter or her website.
