Born to bake. Happy to help.
Harriet Whitehorn grew up in London where she still lives with her husband and three daughters. She studied at Reading University and the Architectural Association and has always worked in building conservation. She currently works for English Heritage. Harriet's first novel, Violet and the Pearl of the Orient, was published by Simon and Schuster and shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Books Prize 2015. There are now four books in the Violet series and Harriet is currently writing a series for older readers for Stripes publishers. Alex G Griffiths is an illustrator specialising in children's picture books and character design. The majority of his work is done by hand, using a combination of pen and ink line work and brush textures in a messy way to create a natural style of illustration. Alex's debut picture book, The Bug Collector, was published in 2019 by Andersen Press.
Like Freddie's cake baking, there's plenty to spice up Harriet Whitehorn's story of cooking, community and camaraderie
