Shy Feet: Short Stories Inspired by Travel is a collection of twelve quirky and charismatic, thought-provoking and touching tales of travel.

There is the inquisitive Ruth who tells the story of The Lost Children of Gatwick Airport. In The Flowers Sleep Tonight, we meet Thomas and Carly, two solo travellers whose paths keep crossing... because that's exactly what Thomas wants. The Runaways tells the story of how young love prompts a spontaneous plan to elope and Homes from Homes is about the lessons Patricia learns from the hotel bellboy she has a fling with. Oh, Henry is the story of how a dream holiday can mean two different things to two lovers and Katie's Maps is an offbeat love letter to Katie's extensive collection of maps. All the beaches are made of pebbles sees extracts from a travel journal tell a woman's life story and find out what Australia and ironed underpants have to do with Claudia wanting to leave her husband of forty years in The Road is Long.

From the unforgiving Australian Outback to the jagged beauty of the Amalfi Coast, from the pebbled beaches of Brighton & Hove to the busy streets of late night Barcelona, this collection of short stories highlights how travel intersects and enriches all of our lives, even without us realising it...
