A massive welcome to my website!
I’m a children’s 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.
I’ve also signed a two book deal with Allen & Unwin for a middle grade Sci-Fi duology (Wooo!). The first book, Mars Awakens, is OUT NOW (!!) and I’m excitedly editing book 2 (due May 2023).
HM Waugh is a children’s author, educator and environmental scientist with a long-term love of wild places and outdoor adventures. She has been kidnapped twice, handles dragons for a job, and dreams of one day blasting into space. Her books mix humour, danger and friendship with a dash of science and imagination.
Her high mountain fantasy The Lost Stone of SkyCity was shortlisted for an Aurealis Award, her YA novel Evacuation Road is a CBCA Book Awards 2022 Notable, and her new Sci-Fi duology has begun with Mars Awakens.
