Welcome to the world of Alex Pearl
Now that you're here, you may as well browse Alex's bookshelf. It won't take up too much of your time. He is, by his own admission, a slow writer, so the bookshelf is a little light at present. But this will hopefully become a tad heavier in the fullness of time.
You may also care to peruse the Interviews page where you'll find a diverse collection of writers of novels, short stories, plays and screenplays candidly talking to Alex about their own approach to writing and what motivates them. Among them are independently published authors, as well as those from established publishing houses like Little Brown, Random House and Penguin. And if it's comedy writing for TV that interests you, you'll even find a writer among them who happens to possess a rather nifty doorstop in the form of a shiny BAFTA. But we're not going to let on who it is. You'll just have to read the interviews for yourself!
