Read full description of the books:
The Boy Who Led Them opens in modern times when a young victim of bullying discovers a two-hundred year old message from Jacob Swift, the king of smugglers, and gets caught up in an adventure that has the potential to solve all of his problems and a mystery several hundred years in the making.
Raised by a fisherman on the English Channel and taken under the wing of the fearsome Billy Bates, Jacob Swift was leading the country’s most successful smuggling gang at fifteen, landing cargoes of brandy, tobacco and silk along the Kent coast whilst fighting battles with rival gangs and Customs officers on land and sea.
But when the king of smugglers gets caught up in a plot to steal a priceless treasure he makes an enemy with enough power to bring his empire to its knees.
The Boy Who Led Them is a story of honour, loyalty and England’s troubled past. A story of treasure lost and finally found.

As a kid he was always reading but he never thought he’d end up on the other side of the fence. George began writing around eight years ago whilst back-packing across Australia.
His debut novel is about a boy who is born into poverty but destined for greatness. Raised by a fisherman on the English Channel Jacob Swift knows the location of every dangerous sandbank and wreck hidden under her surface and as a result is recruited by a fearsome smuggler and trained to lead an army of the toughest men through some of the darkest times in our countries history. It’s a sweet story with a message and a great ending. George was inspired to write the book after learning about his town's fascinating and rather shady history.
The book is best described as commercial fiction and will entertain the reader first and foremost, that’s George's primary intention. However he also hopes to raise awareness of our countries fascinating smuggling history and teach the reader something about the country they are from.
As a reader George likes a wide range of genres and authors for many different reasons. His favourite books are The Stand (Stephen King), 20,000 leagues under the sea (Jules Verne), The Lost World (Conan-Doyle), A Brave New World (Huxley), Animal Farm (Orwell), The Sicilian (Puzo), and Capo (Watson).
