A prolific writer of boys' adventure stories, Kingston did not visit Australia, but some of his novels have Australian settings. He also published a book on emigration from Great Britain to Australia, How to Emigrate, or, The British Colonists: A Tale for All Classes, with an Appendix Forming a Complete Manual for Intending Colonists (1850) and edited the Colonial Magazine and East Indies Review (1849-1852).
