Alison talks with author Danielle Hawkins about the release of her new book Two shakes of a lamb’s tail: the diary of a country vet. Danielle is a Waikato vet, mother, farmer, wife, family member and gardener, with four best-selling novels to her name. This book is a diary through the four seasons of 2020 – and what a year it was, with a pandemic and a drought. Combine this with a drunken literary festival, rampant gorse in the back paddock, some successful matchmaking and several intimate examinations of very large and grumpy animals, and you get a ripper of a book.
