Frances M Thompson is a self-published author of contemporary fiction from London, UK.
Shy Feet: Short Stories Inspired by Travel is her first collection of stories and it was written while Frances travelled the world, spending time in many of the destinations she writes about. To find out more about the stories and how they were written go to http://facebook.com/shyfeetbook.
While she writes about a wide variety of people, places and themes, there are always consistencies in Frances' writing; her characters are identifiable, vivid and perfectly flawed, you will enjoy more than a few gentle laughs and you will always be left with something to think about long after the final sentence is read.
Since October 2011, Frances has been travelling full-time while freelancing as a copywriter, researcher and travel writer. Frances writes a blog about her many journeys - travelling, writing stories and getting lost in new cities - called As the Bird flies (www.asthebirdfliesblog.com). She is currently based in Amsterdam where she is working on her first novel and second short story collection.
