Joy Mutter

Biography

Joy Mutter was born in Jersey in the Channel Islands and lived there for eighteen years. After gaining a Graphic Design Degree at Coventry University, she lived and worked in Kent as a professional graphic designer for twenty years. Joy moved to Oldham in 2012 and has been writing and publishing her books full-time since then. She is currently writing her thirteenth book.

Although Joy has been writing books since 2007, she waited until 2015 to publish six of them on Amazon. Three more books followed in 2016 and one book in 2017. Her twelve books are now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. Four of her books are also available as audiobooks, with four more audiobooks in production and will be available before the end of 2017.

Her first three books are mainly autobiographical and form The Mug Trilogy. Books in this series are A Slice of the Seventies, The Lying Scotsman, and Straws. Book four, Potholes and Magic Carpets is character-led contemporary fiction. Living with Postcards is the author's first non-fiction book. Random Bullets is a crime thriller with a paranormal twist and is the author's favourite.

Her demonic Angel was published in Kindle, paperback and audiobook editions in early 2016. It's a baker's dozen of the author's short stories, written in various genres. In April 2016, Joy published a paranormal thriller called The Hostile. Then came Holiday for The Hostile, book 2 in The Hostile series in December 2016. Book 3, The Hostile Game, was published in April 2017. Four books in The Hostile series are available in Kindle, paperback, and audiobook editions. Book 4, Confronting The Hostile, was published on Amazon in August 2017, plus The Hostile Series Box Set.

The Hostile

Joy Mutter

£0.99

The Hostile is a contemporary thriller with a heavy sprinkling of paranormal and fantasy. In a rundown area of Manchester inside a decrepit bathroom in a small, terraced house overflowing with children and dysfunctional parents, an unfathomable, powerful entity infiltrates young Serena's life with disastrous effects. The enigmatic force not only dramatically affects introverted Serena's life, but threatens the well-being of everyone she knows, especially those people who for some reason have earned the strange girl's displeasure. It soon becomes clear that nobody should ever upset Serena if they know what's good for them. After reading The Hostile, you will never look at DIY in the same way again.

Her demonic Angel and other short stories

Joy Mutter

£0.99

Her demonic Angel is a collection of all of my short stories written thus far. This baker's dozen of short stories have been written in a variety of genres so there should be something for everyone. Some tales are stranger than others, but all could be said to be different shades of dark.
