Third chapter of my novella 'Welcome to the Mad House' up on my blog now. It would mean the world to me if you checked it out! Link in my bio!
Courtney starts working as a scribe for the strange and secretive Bentley family. Stuck in the middle of nowhere in their old country house, she is both fascinated and irritated by the odd, young residents. Fiercely antisocial Lara, who thinks Courtney is mad for taking this job; unfriendly Poppy and Phillip, who are only interested in each other's company; Ronan, who seems to suffer from extreme mood swings and long periods of illness; and charming but unpopular Quinn; who has a complex and confusing relationship with the aloof but attractive Val, who Courtney might just be falling for. Perhaps strangest of all is stammering and scatty Mr Bentley himself, with his distant and ghostly wife Brook. As the days drag on Courtney tries to find out if they're all just mad or if there is something more sinister going on...
