I'm not sure about any of the following.
Book set in a post-apocalyptic Britain, the title may have had "Worm" in it.
There was a character who was just known as "Hat", or sometimes "Hat the Boat", because he had a boat and ferried people up and down a river (might have been the Thames).
There's a boy who has epilepsy and sees visions, which he thinks might be prophecies, possibly they were. He breaks into some mysterious pre-apocalypse ruins, thinking he might find something there that will explain his visions. It turns out that it's an old Air Force base and that there are people living there who still have some old technology.
There's a woman whose father or husband is violent, or possibly both in succession, and she runs away and ends up becoming quite powerful in the area and some people think she's a witch. This is a sort of flashback sequence and takes place before the bit with the boy.
The boy ends up with a group of people who have some pre-apocalypse weapons and are planning to take over and rule the country, possibly the Air Force base people from earlier. They get into a stand-off with another armed group led by a woman, possibly the "witch" from earlier, who have some pre-apocalypse drones and can use them to spy on people, giving them an advantage.
The book might have been a collaboration in some way, or part of a series that was a collaboration. It's possible that some of the things above are from two different books, I'm not sure.
