A House Divided by Rachel McLean

A House Divided – Chapter Three

‘Beyond the water, beyond the tourists and the London Eye, smoke gushed up and over the rooftops, spreading and billowing as the wind caught it. She stared as it thickened and rose. Behind her was silence, the Parliamentary Labour Party collectively holding its breath.’. Read Chapter 3 of ‘A House Divided’.

You’ve found the home of Rachel McLean, author of dystopian thrillers and alternative histories – what I like to think of as twisted realities.

Here you’ll find:

  • My book club, where you can get access to EXCLUSIVE and FREE writing – book excerpts, short stories and more.
  • My fiction writing, including my novels and short stories.
  • My social media feeds and contact page, where you can ask me questions about my writing and why I’m not writing as quickly as I always think I will.
  • The occasional update on what I’m doing when I’m not writing, which includes my weird and wonderful research, attending writing events, hanging out with my family and laughing at my (very stupid) cat.
  • …and there’s a rumour you might get cake here.

Please, look around and explore. And don’t forget to sign up to the book club to keep up to date!

Happy reading,
