About Alannah Foley

Avid writer, photographer, Campervan Capers blogger... and experienced Cycling Widow.

Born in Australia, Alannah Foley was raised in England and lived Down Under for five years in her twenties. Before returning to Old Blighty, she discovered long-lost family, stayed on a camel farm, worked on a City Farm project, and got bitten by every mozzie around.

Over the years, Alannah has channelled her inspirations into various formats – be it a short story, article, poem, or song. After her short stories began ranking well in local & international competitions, she decided to take things a step further, and has now written & self-published works of fiction as well as books based on her travels & life experiences. She likes to thread humour into her work and most enjoys writing fiction with characters who 'tickle' her in some way.

Alannah has also guested with Marj James on Cornwall's Radio St Austell Bay reading her poetry and prose.

Whenever time allows, she also enjoys a spot of photography and her images have been used to best effect in the Campervan Capers blog and on her book covers.

The author currently lives in Cornwall, England, with her cycling-obsessed partner.

Just not funny. This has been done much better elsewhere. She gets an extra star for giving the book away. For a better treatment see this video-

Review by: Sean Q Lee on Feb. 16, 2012 :
An amusing read that cuts just a little too close to the truth, although I still think that the main reason cyclists shave their legs is for the ease of cleaning the gravel out of their abrasions after a fall, rather than for streamlining purposes. An enjoyable read.

Review by: IAN NORTH on Jan. 24, 2012 : (no rating)
Having answered Alannah's questionnaire I discovered that I am a cyclomaniac and suffering from OCD (obessive cycling disorder). My wife thinks that a CWA (cycling widows annonymous)group is an excellent idea! She also now claims to be an unpaid soigner and is unrewarded for this role.
We both found Alannah Foley's book "Cycling Widows", to be amusing although on occasions being rather uncomfortably too near to the truth. The book would lend itself to being serialised by any cycling magazine, in fact they are missing a treat by not publishing the book in this format.
