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.

I write middle-grade and young adult, usually with a pot of tea beside me (French Earl Grey please, black), even if it often goes cold.

I live with my hubby and daughter, two chickens, and quite a few fish. By day I can be spotted at Perth Zoo, in classrooms and in gardens, pollinating cucurbits or inspiring kids to get their STEAM on (that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics in case you’re out of the education loop).

Read, enjoy and join the conversation!
