About Joy Mutter:
Joy Mutter was born in Jersey in the Channel Islands and lived there for eighteen years. She moved to Kent and worked as a professional graphic designer for over twenty years. Joy moved to Oldham in 2012 where she's been writing, designing, and publishing her books full-time ever since. Although she's been writing books since 2007, Joy waited until 2015 to publish six of them on Amazon. Four more books followed in 2016, two in 2017, and one in 2018. All thirteen are now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. Nine are also available as audiobooks on Audible, iTunes, and Amazon. 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.

In 2018, Joy published The Trouble With Liam, a psychological crime thriller, and is now working on two other thrillers.
Book 3 of the Hostile series moves forward in time to when Serena Drummond is eighteen years old and pregnant. Tile X reveals to her that there is another 'tile-bearer' and that like it or not they are in competition with each other in a grisly numbers game to achieve the highest death toll. The consequences for the loser is a hell beyond the scope of nightmares. Now I know why I am hooked on this series. The story in each of the books so far, is not more of the same. Each book steps up to another level, just when you think it couldn't get any worse. Watch out for my review of book 4, I'm already half way through it.
