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.
Alannah enjoys drawing her observations & ideas together into whatever form seems appropriate – be it a book, short story, article, poem, or song. She is also an avid photographer and her images complement her writing in the Campervan Capers Blog.
To date, the author's books include: The Jacaranda Trail (about her five-year stint Down Under); Campervan Capers; Cycling Widows; and SHADES, a collection of short fictional works. She has also written and illustrated a short story ebook for children called Slowcoach Sid (NOT the Fastest Snail in the Garden!).
Alannah 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-

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.

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.
