I Am Arthur is the first of two books written from the perspective of Artur Kamiński. It is the hilarious diary of an 11 year-old football crazy kid who moves from Poland to Belfast. The book is an adventure and follows Arthur as he goes on the beak, learns a musical instrument, makes friends with his pensioner neighbours and scores buckets of goals for Hercules United.
The book is based on the friendships Arthur forms and subtly touches on themes such as racism, community, the elderly and growing up in Belfast through great storytelling and a compelling story.
Like all good writers I have endless notepads filled with stories, characters and plots. I’ve a couple of very exciting things in the pipeline but I’m not allowed to tell you about them just yet!
