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.
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 in 2017. All ten are now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. Four are also available as audiobooks on Audible, iTunes, and Amazon with more audiobooks in production.
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. Her fourth work, Potholes and Magic Carpets, is a character-led contemporary novel. Living with Postcards is the author's first non-fiction book. Random Bullets is a paranormal crime thriller and the author's favourite out of all her books.
Her demonic Angel was published in early 2016. It's a baker's dozen of the author's short stories, written in various genres. As well as the paperback and Kindle editions, there is also an audiobook version of Her demonic Angel.
In April 2016, Joy published an unusual paranormal thriller called The Hostile. In December 2016, she published book two of The Hostile series, called Holiday for The Hostile, plus an audiobook version of The Hostile. In April 2017, Joy published The Hostile Game, book three of The Hostile series, and is currently writing book four. There are audiobook editions of the entire Hostile series. Joy's eleventh book will be Confronting The Hostile and she has almost finished the first draft. There are plenty more books in the pipeline as she's never short of ideas.
