Why did successful thriller author L.A. Larkin turn her hand to writing a funny mystery with a dog as the central character?
 
Louisa Bennet’s personal goal behind the Monty & Me and videos is to provide a platform to advocate for rescue dogs and help put an end to puppy farming.
 
‘Humour is a great way to touch on difficult and emotive subjects in a way that’s entertaining and poignant. If readers and social media friends engage with Monty, the dog hero in the book, they’re engaging with a dog that’s rescued from the pound and adopted by a young detective. A positive message.’
 
Louisa has two Golden Retrievers. Pickles is the inspiration for the character of Monty and came
from a breeder she thoroughly checked out, meeting the dog’s parents and checking out their living conditions and health. Lilly is a rescued dog from Golden Retriever Rescue NSW.
 
‘If you’re thinking of buying a puppy for Christmas, please don’t buy one from a pet shop or online. You have no idea what conditions the dog’s parents live in or if they have health issues that have been passed onto the pups. The RSPCA estimates that 95% of dogs sold in pet shops come from puppy farms and backyard breeders.’
