My name’s Rachel McCollin and I’ve been writing since I was old enough to hold a pen. In every job I’ve done, I’ve been the unofficial writer in residence, putting together briefing notes, press releases, training documents and anything else that involves putting pen to paper. As well as being the office expert on the possessive apostrophe.
I’m told that the world wants upbeat, cheerful stories – well, I’m sorry but I can’t help. My stories have an uncanny habit of predicting future events (and not the good ones). They’re inspired by my work at the Environment Agency and the Labour Party and explore issues like climate change, Islamophobia, the refugee crisis and sexism in high places.
But the most important thing is that they’re a cracking read with gripping plots.
For the last few years I’ve been writing educational books about web design and development, focusing on WordPress and on mobile and responsive web design. Four of those have been published along with numerous articles, opinion pieces and tutorials.
But now I’m turning to fiction.
My first novel, Exile, is coming out in January 2018 which I’m incredibly excited about. For now I’m busy editing it and planning out the next novel, and I’m lucky enough to have a lovely writing shed. There’s no wifi so I have no excuse not to write.
