Raymond witnessed a harrowing sight that no child should ever see: an environmental catastrophe that wreaked havoc on his town, its people, and the local wildlife. This disaster left deep scars and drew the attention of powerful, sinister forces intent on burying the truth. To escape their clutches, Raymond was forced to flee, ultimately finding refuge on a secluded island in the middle of a lake in his town. There, he spent five long years in hiding, surviving in isolation, haunted by fear and loneliness.

However, a life in perpetual hiding was not sustainable. Raymond found himself at a crossroads: should he continue to flee, or stand and fight? The arrival of a new friend and the assistance of a resourceful reporter tipped the scales. Together, they emboldened Raymond to confront the truth, to embark on a daring mission to rescue his kidnapped parents, and to seek justice against those responsible for the disaster. It’s a tale of courage, resilience, and the power of truth in the face of overwhelming adversity.

In his early 20s, Euan McCall trained as a local news reporter, covering everything from crime to village fetes. Stories included anything from judging the largest marrow competition to dressing up as Santa for seven hours for a Christmas feature story (where babies were sick on him often). Despite being pretty average at his job he had stories published locally, regionally, and nationally. After failing one of his key journalistic exams 17 times (Shorthand – basically speed writing!), he decided a change of direction was required and has since very happily worked as a career adviser in schools, colleges and universities. After being raised in the Midlands near his beloved Coventry City FC, he now lives with his wife and two children near Banbury. The Swan Island Boy is Euan’s first novel.
