Author takes on Harry Potter

West Dorset author Kit Berry has taken on the tough world of publishing and beaten it at its own game.

Kit Berry, a former teacher, started writing her Stonewylde series after work. She set up her own publishing company, even remortgaged her house to get her work read - now the Americans want it and academics and authors are praising it.

Like Thomas Hardy, she has drawn on real Dorset places and customs to create the series - and thanks to the word of mouth power of the internet she's quietly taking the country by storm.

She will be at The Bookshop in Bridport for a book signing on July 14 from 10am to noon.
