Welcome to the website of Virginia Bergin

Welcome

Welcome to The Rain (H2O in the US) and The Storm . . . I’m Virginia and I – did not write this story. Ruby did. She’s my main character and she wrote a story about what happens when a totally ordinary (and utterly unique, because everyone is) British teenager finds herself caught up in a global apocalypse.

Her story is a sci-fi apocalyptic/dystopian horror-thriller – with comedy, unsuitable footwear and a bacterium from outer space.

It is also a story about love; love for your home, for your family, for your friends; love for strangers . . . for the planet we live on . . . and for the wrong guy. (Possibly.)

We hope you enjoy it!

LATEST BOOKThe Storm

THE END OF THE WORLD WAS JUST THE BEGINNING . . .

In this sequel to The Rain Ruby's fight for survival continues in a world where water is deadly.

"I'll tell you a weird thing about apocalypses - a thing I didn't even know until I was in one: they seem pretty bad, don't they?

Well, take it from me: they can always get worse . . ."

JUST ONE DROP WILL KILL YOU

I will try to be honest and tell everything as it was, but I will not swear, because my mum hated swearing. I hope you’ll understand. I’ll write something beautiful instead. I’ll write Butterfly. For my mum.

Everything is Butterfly. The whole world is Butterfly, because there’s something in the rain that kills you if you get just one drop on your skin. I’ve survived this long – I don’t know how. I’ve got really good at watching the sky.

And the worst thing? I’m stuck with someone I wouldn’t kiss if he was the last boy on earth.

Which he kind of is.

Butterfly. Butterfly. Butterfly.
