Words on a Limb Interviews Stephen B. Pearl

So who is Stephen B. Pearl? He is a lifeguard, husband, mystic, science enthusiast, home handyman, backyard mechanic, and writer. Like most of us the face he wears changes with the company and the season. His three cats know him as the pride alpha, I like to think so, though servant might be more accurate. Who is he kidding?

Stephen B. Pearl steps into the Spotlight on Authors.
