Augusta Russel Scattergood grew up in a small town in Mississippi. She has since lived in North Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, California, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and Florida- twice! Although if anybody asks where she's from, Mississippi would be the answer.
Augusta is former school librarian, a book reviewer and an avid blogger. GLORY BE, her debut novel, was named one of Amazon's Top Twenty Middle School books for 2012 and received the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award for her region. A second novel, THE WAY TO STAY IN DESTINY, set in Florida and told by a baseball-loving, piano-playing boy, was published by Scholastic in January, 2015.
