HM Waugh is an author, environmental scientist and educator with experience presenting to school (K-12) and community groups on topics ranging from conservation to dinosaurs. Her middle grade novel 'The Lost Stone of SkyCity' is out now with Fremantle Press, and she has science non-fiction published in CSIRO's 'Double Helix' magazine and Kings Park's 'For People & Plants' magazine.


HM Waugh is an environmental scientist, writer 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 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.
