New novel in January 2025!

This isn’t exactly NEW news, as I’ve known about it for a while, but since I neglected to post about it, it’s new to this website: I have a new novel coming out in 2025! Publication date: January 21. YAY!!

Here’s the Publisher’s Weekly announcement:

Taylor Norman at Holiday House/Neal Porter Books has bought H.M. Bouwman’s Scattergood, a middle grade novel set in rural Iowa, in which precocious but awkward Peggy faces a year of difficulties, in a story set against the landscape of WWII—and an influx of European war refugees into the community. Publication is slated for spring 2025; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency sold world rights.

I’ll be back soon–SOON–with more information!

P.S. You can pre-order the novel already!
