Alex Pearl is an advertising copywriter living in NW London with his wife and two kids.

'Sleeping with the Blackbirds' - a black, comic urban fantasy, was initially written for his children in 2011 and published by PenPress, and subsequently republished by CreateSpace.

In 2014 his short story, 'Scared to Death' - the fictionalised account of the first British serviceman to be executed for cowardice during the First World War, was published by Mardibooks along with 22 other short stories in an anthology entitled 'The Clock Struck War.'

A selection of pieces taken from his popular blog ( are now also available in paperback published by Amazon under the title: 'Random Ramblings of a Short-sighted Blogger.'

Alex is currently writing a very dark thriller set in London following the terrorist attack in 2005. He hopes to have this completed and on the shelves by 2019.

Alex's claim to fame is that he is quite possibly the only person on this planet to have been accidentally locked in a record shop on Christmas Eve.
