About the author

Alannah Foley

Alannah Foley... aka The Pyjama Writer  

Author of fantasy adventures, fun mysteries, travel tales, and other maverick titles that won't fall in line...  

Raised in the UK, 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 picturesque Cornwall with her cycling-obsessed partner.

She is an international book award finalist and multi-genre author best known for her series of fantasy adventures inspired by fairy tales and her mysteries starring laid-back Aussie Scott Chevalier.

Alannah has also written about her travel capers, both in a campervan and Down Under (not both together - yet!), and has a handful of other oddball titles to her name. Most of her work comes with a sprinkle of humour.

Outside of writing, she is the founder and head owl at Book Lover Merch, where she designs physical and digital goodies for book lovers to enjoy.

When she's not immersed in creative pursuits, she likes to hit the trails on her bike, take walks in nature, or go kayaking – basically, anything that will get her butt out of the chair for a while that doesn't involve going to a sweaty old gym.
