Alannah Foley... aka 'The Pyjama Writer'
Author of Cycling Widows, Campervan Capers, and Tales 'Full of Twists, Turns & Tickles'
Born in Australia, raised in the UK, Alannah has been an ‘indie’ author for several years now. She writes both fiction & non-fiction, covering topics as diverse as capers in a campervan, the vagaries of living with an obsessive cyclist, travels Down Under, and tales ‘full of twists, turns & tickles’ based in Cornwall where she currently lives.
She lived in her Australian birthplace for five years in her twenties, and made it through without being bitten by either shark or snake. Mozzies, however, did love to use her as a dart board! But now she's safely back in Old Blighty and you can find out more about the author and why she's called 'The Pyjama Writer' on her website at www.thepyjamawriter.com/about.

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.
