Author Biography

Lisa Domeny is the award winning author of the heart warming children's book Winnie and the Red Winniebago. She lives in Australia and founded Team Golden Oldies, a group dedicated to adopting senior dogs and giving them a safe and loving forever home to see out their days.

Lisa started her love affair with senior dogs while fostering 13 year old Maggie. Although she only had Maggie for 9 months, the joy of watching her enjoying life was immeasurable. It is Lisa's hope that the Team Golden Oldies will encourage people to adopt senior dogs. "If just one senior dog is adopted because of Team Golden Oldies then they would have made a real difference in this world and their legacy will live on."

Indy’s Spot of Bother by Lisa Domeny is the ninth book in the Team Golden Oldies series of children’s books. This is a super picture book that follows Indy in a delightful story of accepting herself. Indy was once an only dog, then her mum and dad started adopting all these new siblings. One day Indy noticed something a little strange. She didn’t have the same golden fur as her siblings; instead, she was completely covered in spots. So, she decides that she will find a way to fit in by trying to wash them away, rub them out, or blending in, but then her mum has a very special lesson to teach Indy about being herself.

Indy’s Spot of Bother is a sweet story that kids will love with adorable pictures throughout of a real dog and an honest life lesson. Lisa Domeny delivers an easy-to-understand lesson about self-acceptance and being different. This is a great book that parents are going to love to share with their children and that children will instantly enjoy. Through a series of cute struggles, kids will laugh at and love the funny ways that Indy tries to fit in while also being able to connect with and understand why Indy feels different. Parents will enjoy the endearing message of embracing differences and how the hardest thing to do is to be yourself. Indy’s Spot of Bother is a charming story of self-acceptance with delightful photos and a lovely lesson about being different that will encourage children to always be themselves.


This and the whole series are a wonderful and easy read. If you have little ones., or you are a teacher these books are a must read. Highly recommended.


I purchased this book along with the rest of the Golden Oldie children’s books for my son. They have a beautiful message behind each one. These books aren’t just for children. It is important for all of us to remember like Indy we shouldn’t try to change ourselves so people like us or we fit in better.
