About Alannah Foley

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 is a writer of both fiction & non-fiction, covering topics as diverse as capers in a campervan, the vagaries of living with an obsessive cyclist, adventures Down Under, and tales ‘full of twists, turns & tickles’.

Alannah lived in her Aussie birthplace for five years in her twenties, where mozzies regularly used her for target practice. She managed to return to Old Blighty devoid of shark or snake bite, however, and currently lives in Cornwall – with (of course) her cycling-obsessed partner.

After the release of her first mystery, KILLER CLIMATE, the author will be working on more stories in the Campervan Bushman series, which she hopes will continue to delight and entertain her readers.

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.
