I’m an author, educator and environmental scientist from Perth, Western Australia. I love children’s books! I love reading them, I love writing them, and I love to spread the cheer.

My debut book for middle-readers is OUT NOW (wheee!) . Check out more about ‘The Lost Stone of SkyCity’ over here.

I also love to review all things kidlit on my blog.

My author bio is below, but if you want to know even more then head on over to the awesome¬†‘About’ bit, or feel free to contact me¬†because I love to hear from you!


Author bio

HM Waugh is an environmental scientist, author and educator with a long-term love of wild places and high mountains. This has led to icy feet and sunburnt cheeks in magical countries like New Zealand, Nepal, Bolivia and Switzerland. She has studied dolphins in New Zealand and rare plants in the Wheatbelt, and worked in mining and construction projects across Western Australia. When she’s not writing, she’s teaching school and community groups about stories, science and the environment. This often involves working with children and animals concurrently, and Waugh loves being able to truthfully say she handles dragons for a job. Her debut novel ‘The Lost Stone of SkyCity’ was published in 2019.
