Danielle Hawkins grew up on a sheep and beef farm near Otorohanga in New Zealand, and later studied veterinary science. After graduating as a vet she met a very nice dairy farmer who became her husband and switched to sheep farming. Danielle spends two days per week working as a large-animal vet and the other five as housekeeper, cook and general dogsbody. She has two small children, and now that they both go to school she finds more time to write things.
She is already the author of two brilliant novels, Dinner At Rose’s And Chocolate Cake For Breakfast.
