Overview


Here is a novel that will keep the reader spellbound, as you travel along with Francois Leblanc, a little boy of 12 years of age convicted of a crime of killing his parents (that he did not commit) and then sent to a federal penitentiary for 15 years, the first in Canadian history. The reader cant but help feel for this little boy whose only crime was in trying to save his mother. His pain and suffering, which very few humans could endure, especially at such a young age of 12, was not something that was going to defeat Francois, for he lived off of it, as if it was food.
He feared no one. No guard could defeat him by beatings or by isolation nor could the best convict take him on. His reputation grew as time went on. Convicts decided to change his name to Little Tarzan when he did 42 days in the hole back to back on bread and water. Then when he took a guards eye out and another 25 years was added on to his sentence, they called him just Tarzan.
Locked up in a segregated wing of the prison called China Town, he spent years in his cell trying to discover himself. Then he met The Professor who sent him on a journey to reach beyond the stars. And he did just that! Six feet 3inches, 275 pounds of muscle he was a walking miracle. They said that just by sheer force alone he could tear open his cell door and no one could stop him. He was becoming one of the strongest men within the walls of the prison that even guards nodded their heads to him in respect at his strength.
Yet his violence and hate that he had lived with for so long now turned to humility and muscle. Then the day came when he would show, not just the prison, but also the whole world, justhow strong he was.

Meet the Author



Donald P. Pollock, Esq. knows his stories. His previous novels stood out from the crowd of books that saturate our market on a daily basis. Some of his readers wrote to him and said the books should be made into movies. Others stated that his novels brought joy to the heart when sadness was winning over. His writing is in such simplistic terms that one wonders what category it should be placed in: Fantasy, Drama, Action, or Romance, for these are all combined in his novels. He writes day in and day out to reach the farthest part of his imagination, and then he hurriedly put the pieces together to make a story. His stories have fl ow and are easy to understand enticing the reader to continue with a desire to know the ending.

Born in Montreal, he has been a Public Speaker, a one-on-one counsellor, a teacher, and a Paraprofessional in the field of Social Science. As a Public Speaker, he has spoken in front of thousands of people trying to let them gain insight into human behaviour.

Today he works on yet another novel, hoping to share his deep imagination with the rest of the world. When asked why he has the letters "Esq." after his last name he states frankly, "It stands for Esquire, which means a person of good standing."

Mr. Pollock is also a member of the Alberta Writers' Guild.
