About the book
'Hector's Perfect Cake' will be self-published with the help of SilverWood Books. To raise funds required for self-publishing, I'll be running a Kickstarter campaign from 30th June – 24th July 2020, with the book due to be published fully in October–November 2020.

Hi there! I'm Hector, and this book is about me! Oh, this really was a worrisome day. I was trying to make a cake for my Granny's birthday, but I'd run out of the most important ingredient –peanut butter! I know – how can a badger run out of peanut butter? It's our most favourite thing to eat! I was so worried about Granny being disappointed, so I just had to go out and find some more. It's a good thing my friends, Mr. Bearford, Artie and Lola, were on hand to help!
Hello! I'm Lily, the author and illustrator of 'Hector's Perfect Cake'. I live in Cambridge, where I work as an innovation consultant. I'm also a small business owner – I've run my online store, Lily in Space, since 2016.
My favourite animals are badgers, birds and bats, although I also love animals that don't begin with the letter B.
