Welcome to Mutt or Meow Monday!
Mutt or Meow Monday is where we interview the author’s animal friends instead of interviewing the author. Let’s see what the animals have to say!
It’s great to have you here today.
Please introduce yourself.
My name is Bella. I’m a Jack Russell cross, and my owners adopted me from the Humane Society when I was a tiny puppy. They call me rambunctious but I rocked it at puppy school because I’m very clever. My owners also call me bossy but I call it attitude, and I have lots.
What’s your favorite book by Shelley Munro and why?
I like Shelley’s Talking Dog series because the dog Killer is very funny. All three books in the series are fun, and the dog gets all the best lines. There’s book one: Talking Dogs, Aliens and Purple People Eaters, book two: Never Send a Dog to do a Woman’s Job and book three: Romantic Interlude.
Do you ever interrupt Shelley for attention when she’s trying to write? Does she stop and give you attention, brush you off, or bribe you with treats?
When it suits me. That stupid lap top is always in the way when I want to jump on Shelley for a cuddle and have a snooze on her lap. I can usually get an ear scratch and a quick cuddle, and sometimes if I’m quick, I get to add some words to Shelley’s story. She usually grumbles and has the cheek to delete my contribution.
Maybe if I annoy her enough she’ll add me into her book like she did with Scotty, the dog she had before me.
Killer is based on Scotty, you know. I’m waiting for the right book before I go into sneaky mode to get myself written in as a character.
Does Shelley ever read her writing to you? Do you like it?
Not really, but she mutters an awful lot. She keeps waking me up while I’m trying to nap.
Has Shelley ever based one of her characters on you? Which one?
As I said earlier, I’m waiting for the right book before I start my subtle maneuvering to grab a part in one of her books. It’s got to be the perfect book.
What does Shelley do to celebrate when she finishes writing a book?
She takes me for an extra long walk, I get cuddles and she has a celebratory glass of wine. Sometimes she has two glasses of wine.
What do you wish Shelley would do with her writing time instead of writing?
She already takes me for long walks. I think writing makes her happy and a happy owner means quality cuddles.
What’s the best part about living with an author?
She stays home more often rather than going to work, and I’m never left alone for long. I have my breakfast, patrol my section, have a snooze and sunbathe and then Shelley is home and I’m allowed inside the big kennel.
What’s the worst part about living with an author?
That stupid laptop thing is always in the way, but apart from that I can’t complain.
Chicken, bacon or cheese? Chicken! Shelley’s husband was half asleep the other night and gave me his chicken breast instead of the special scraps for me. It was awesome and very tasty. I ran away before he changed his mind.
Butt sniffin’, leg humpin’, fluffy toys? I like my toys. I have inside toys and outside ones, but I like to switch things up and move my toys around. I’m a bit of a rebel when it comes to toys, and I’m not above stealing toys from other careless dogs.
Final thoughts: I bark with a Kiwi accent. You should come and visit me some time.

Back cover blurb:
Sex. Lily Morgan hasn’t had any since her husband ran off with his boyfriend. But where will she find a man willing to overlook chronic clumsiness, dimpled thighs and cellulite?
Sex. Prince Alexandre Bellangere has too much. Sex, that is. Being treated as a sex object is becoming a pain in the ass. Heck, he’s more than just a pretty face and muscular body. Alex has brains and ambition.
But Dalcon princes are expected to have sex, mate and breed royal undergrowns. Determined to change his life, he sneaks from the palace and the planet disguised as plain Alex Bell.
Sex. Lily Morgan takes one look at the golden stranger and starts thinking “what if?”
Alex Bell takes one look at the curvy travel agent and reconsiders his stand on sex. Maybe.
Sex. Lily’s family is not happy about her mating with an alien they know nothing about. They decide to leave Killer, the talking dog, to keep an eye on the situation.
Take one chubby travel agent and an alien Dalconian prince in disguise, add in sex, laughter, endless possibilities. Combine and shake vigorously. Result…a true-blue love.
