BioI'm Rachel McCollin and I write dystopian and post-apocalyptic thrillers.
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.
