Hi There! - Three years ago my son was born and since then I have endevoured to write my own bedtime stories to read to him. I have always been a fan of the more traditional faery tales, rather than their modern day equivalents, and I set about creating new tales with Robots (he likes Robots!) since they didn't feature much two hundred years ago. And www.grimrobots.com was born. A place of traditional faery tales, with Robots.
A little later I read 'The Ode Within' by Stephen Fry, which opened my eyes to the world of poetry, something clicked, and here I am on Blurb with offerings of my work.
I mostly work on these during my lunch hour, so things move at a very steady pace, but it keeps me happy - and maybe you too, but mostly my son, which is the whole point.
Thanks for looking.
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
The Robot Pirate Love Story of Captain Flint and Miss Sparks... aka, The Robot Mariner...
Now gather ye and listen to
A tale as tall ‘tis wide
About a Robot Pirate who
Did sail from tide to tide
The Rusty Bucket was his ship
His crew were Nuts and Bolts
And on his shoulder there did sit
His parrot Jolly Jolts
He braved the sea and far beyond
So treasured was his prize:
He sought the Witch that whixed her wand
And sucked out both his eyes...
