Author of Twisted Realities


A House Divided

Loyal government minister, loving wife and devoted mother – but when the state becomes her enemy, where do her loyalties lie?


My Plan to Write a #novelinaweek

My recent increase in productivity has convinced me that I can write the entire first draft of a novel in a week. Here’s how I plan to do it.


Rachel McLean


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 Exile, my first novel, which is out in January 2018.
  • 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) cats.
  • …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,
