Turtle was conceived during an eventful skinny-dipping session on the coast of North Wales. He is obsessed with trapping pigeons for their "good luck feathers", using skills he claims to have acquired from staying too long in his mother's womb. We learn how Turtle has employed these unappreciated skills around the world . . .
Meet your eccentric new London neighbours! Some harbour secrets. Some stumble, tumble, or tiptoe through their days. Others hurtle towards bizarre destinies. PEOPLE OF BLOOMSBURY is as snug as an English country village, as intriguing as a Miss Marple mystery, and as enthralling as Tales of the City. This book is a literary antidote to the lockdown blues.
PEOPLE OF BLOOMSBURY is available on Amazon from late August, 2021. This audio drama podcast provides an exclusive preview.
Be enchanted by author D. J. Swales' debut feel-good novel of spell-binding and quirky magical realism fiction. The micro-fiction and short story chapters of PEOPLE OF BLOOMSBURY will charm readers of The Midnight Library, Convenience Store Woman, The Diary of Adrian Mole, The Nakano Thrift Shop, Strange Weather in Tokyo, One Hundred Years of Solitude, and Palace Walk.
Meet these neighbours and more . . .

Josie is an nocturnal neighbourhood seer and midnight street dancer.

Mr. Bootle is the owner of an esoteric bookshop haunted by a ghost named Jemima.

Jasper Mince lives a clandestine rent-free life under the bed of an unwitting local resident.

Mallory Blunder is a flamboyant purple-gowned theatre impresario who swings from one stage disaster to another.

Mrs. Sorpresa owns and runs a cavernous invitation-only Colombian cafe and bakery, while quietly nursing a broken heart .

Mrs. Hargreaves and her two children cultivate a fifth floor ramshackle balcony farm nicknamed, The Hanging Gardens of Bloomsbury.
