About Alex Pearl

Alex Pearl is an extremely short-sighted and slightly shambolic author living in leafy North West London with a wife and two kids. 'Sleeping with the Blackbirds', his first published work of fiction, was first published by Pen Press in 2011. In 2014, his short story 'Scared to Death' was published by Mardibooks in its athology 'The Clock Struck War' to mark the centenary of the First World War. 'The Chair Man' published by Fizgig Press in 2019 is a thriller set in 2005, and is quite possibly the world's first thriller to feature a tetraplegic protagonist waging war on international terrorism. 'The Chair Man' is Alex's first full-length novel. His only other claim to fame is that he is almost certainly the only human being on this planet to have been inadvertently locked in a record shop on Christmas Eve.
