Children's Fiction & Non-Fiction

Mikayla Bridge

Agent: John Baker

Mikayla Bridge is a fantasy author living in Melbourne, Australia. She can often be found playing board games, drinking too much coffee, and lovingly tormenting her characters. She grew up on a small-town farm and completed a BA with Honours in Political Science and International Relations. Raised on horror movies and musical theatre, her writing is often a frankensteined love letter to both. 

Mikayla's debut Of Flame and Fury was acquired by First Ink, Macmillan Children’s Books with Macmillan US and Pan Macmillan Australia in a global six-figure pre-empt. It will be published globally in July 2025, with the second book, a standalone set in the same world, following in 2026. 

Cate Augustin, Editorial Director at MCB, bought world rights for two books from John Baker at Bell Lomax Moreton, alongside Asia Harden, Assistant Editor at Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Young Readers, a division of Macmillan US and Claire Craig, Deputy Publishing Director at Pan Macmillan Australia.
