About HM Waugh

I’m a children’s book writer who believes you can’t write an awesome manuscript without reading a library’s worth of awesome books. So that’s what I do. And HM Waughyou learn best when you teach others, so I’m recording what I find along the way.

My book reviews look at what worked. I love to deconstruct books.

Why was a particular book popular?

Why did it win an award or a bevy of devoted fans?

I write all types of kidlit: Picture books, junior fiction, middle-grade, young adult. I love them all! When writing I usually require a pot of tea beside me, even if it often goes cold.

I live with my hubby and daughter. And five neon tetra fish, all named Pony. Because that’s how it rolled on the day…

Read, enjoy and join the conversation!
