Famous fantasy author, Sophie Tallis, has spent a day at a Clevedon bookshop where she met fans and signed copies of her books.

Bristol-born Sophie, author of the epic White Mountain fantasy series, attended Books on the Hill in Hill Road where she was welcomed enthusiastically by both fiction and non-fiction fans in the town.

Alistair Sims, owner of Books on the Hill, said: “We anticipated a good day but it actually exceeded even our expectations.

“Her White Mountain cakes were a lovely and fun touch that amused everyone.

“Good weather, good footfall and good company were all ingredients of a successful event.

“Sophie herself was brilliant and everyone enjoyed talking to her as they browsed the shop.”
