Well chosen words ________________________________
Alex Pearl has plied his trade as an advertising copywriter for more years than he'd care to own up to, and has written for most conceivable sectors - above-the-line, below-the-line, through-the-line and online. Over time, he has penned press advertisements, TV commercials, Direct Mail packs, corporate brochures, radio commercials, websites - and everything in between. And along the way has been fortunate enough to have had his work recognised by such bodies as Cannes, D&AD, British TV and Campaign Press - among others.
In recent years, he has extended his writing activities to include published books - both fiction and non-fiction. His first novel, Sleeping with the Blackbirds was published for the teen market by PenPress in 2011. This was followed by his short story Scared to Death - a fictionalised account of the first convicted British serviceman for desertion and cowardice during the First World War, which was published in the anthology The Clock Struck War compiled by Mardibooks in 2014 to mark the centenary of the Great War. In 2019, his taut and well-paced thriller, The Chair Man was published by Fizgig Press as an e-book and paperback.
Alex has also edited several books including The Changing Face of Religion and Human Rights by Clemens N Nathan - a scholarly tome that is available from most academic centres and seats of learning with theology and international human rights faculties. Alex's only other claim to fame is that he is probably the only human being on this planet to have suffered the misfortune of being accidentally locked in a record shop on Christmas Eve.
