Written Fireside is a round robin style written, short story feature based on the campfire game where one person starts a story then passes it on to the next person gathered by the fire to continue.
For each story I write part 1, then each participating author (a Fire Writer) adds a part in turn.

Written Fireside's Christmas by the Fire Blog Hop
A fun, or little known fact about Erin:
"I once had an entire bus park full of my fellow students cover for me so I wouldn't get suspended from college. I smacked the Head Boy of the boys' school around the face with a bottle of water. He'd cheated on my best friend. The slimeball tried to get me disciplined for 'violence' (I'm sure it hadn't even hurt!). Fifty plus people refused to back him up and confirm I'd done what he was accusing me of (even one teacher). If you cheat on my friends, be afraid."
I live a happy life full of wonderful friends, in love with a man who buys me books instead of flowers. To mix things up a little, I write books where friends and lovers hit obstacles and (usually) overcome them. When I’m not doing that I read absolutely everything I can get my hands on, spend an inordinate amount of time in pyjamas and run a fun-but-informative blog on British history.

The Best Thing I Never Had
Five years ago at university they had been seven friends that laughed hard and loved harder.
Nicky and Miles were the couple that were always meant to be… Leigha and Adam, not so much…
So when Adam and Harriet grew close during endless days in the library, they did the one thing that changed everything – they kept a secret. And when it came out, it all fell apart.
When the day comes for bridesmaids to be chosen and best men to fulfil drunken promises, Nicky and Miles’ wedding isn’t just a wedding, it’s a reunion – loaded with past hurts, past regrets, past loves…
The Best Thing I Never Had is in turns funny and sad, but always honest, about friendship in all its forms and the practicality of second chances.
