Welcome to my
online journal...

My name is Alexander Gordon Smith, and I'm the author of various books including The Inventors series and the brand new Furnace series.

This is my blog, and is where I talk about books, writing and, well, probably other stuff too...

Trapped By Monsters

The wonderful site Trapped By Monsters is running a poetry challenge which is well worth entering if anyone enjoys silly verse! The rules are the poem can be no more than eight lines long, must include the word Bobbly, and must answer the question: Is there any chance it snapped off by mistake? Here's my rather dismal effort!

The Short Saga of Slobbery McHorribly
There once lived a beastie called Slobbery McHorribly,
Whose slippery snout was all nobbly and bobbly.
He would wheeze through the forest sniffing everyone smelly,
Leaving them covered in bogeys and nose jelly.
Well one day the monsters grew tired of his schnozz,
And snuck into his snotnest to cut the thing off.
When dawn came the monsters said to old Slobbery:
‘Must have snapped off by mistake, but at least you can breath properly!”
