Lock Pollard


I enjoyed my young adulthood so much I can’t let it go.

Growing up I was always looking for adventures and was fortunate enough to travel with my family and I went to school in Australia, England and the US.

After finishing high school I became a lifeguard in Queensland and worked on some of the most beautiful beaches in the World.

Then while embarking on an around the world trip I wrote a story and discovered how much I loved writing.

As such, my writing incorporates my time as a lifeguard and the adventures I had as a young adult.

Currently I’m in the planning stages for the second novel in the Lion Rock Lifeguard Academy Series. Having completed the first report (Skate or Die) I then fleshed out the whole series so I know where the relationships will go. I’ll spend the first half of 2013 setting up some plot points and character arcs and then write it. I do know at this stage that it blends into the third one, which is much darker and is more reflective of themes 15 year olds identify with.
