Happy Birthday to Me

PhotoFunia-1540159587

I’ve had a fantastic birthday weekend with my daughter, Zoe. She’s an incredibly busy editor for a magazine, so I particularly appreciate the effort she always goes to each year to travel hundreds of miles to my house to make my birthday special. I gave her a paperback edition of The Trouble With Liam and await her opinion. I’ve warned her how shocking some of the chapters are, but it’s so far received nine 5-star reviews on Goodreads in its first month, so it appears readers enjoy my latest book despite the shocks, maybe because of them.

THE TROUBLE WITH LIAM was published on Amazon on 1.10.2018. It’s a powerful psychological thriller set in Ireland and Sheffield and tells the life story of Liam O’Sullivan in all its twisted glory. It begins with tales of his challenging childhood in Dublin and follows him through sometimes tragic events which change him into a misogynistic, controlling, ultimately lethal bully living in Sheffield. Liam thought he could do as he pleased … until he was taught otherwise. Prepare to be shocked in different ways throughout the book. If you’re not a fan of thrillers or reading books containing violence, sex, and swearing, please avoid The Trouble With Liam. If you enjoy lashings of dark humour, situations to make your eyes pop out, thrills of every kind all wrapped up in a gripping, dramatic storyline, please read on. I’m currently writing the next book in the series, The Trouble With Russell.

Here are some snippets from nine 5-star reviews of The Trouble With Liam.
“As a psychological thriller, this book ticks all the boxes.” “If you’re OK with violence and scenes that make you wince then this is a great read.” “This is a dark, shocking story that will keep you thinking long after you’ve finished reading it.” “The only trouble with Liam, I found, was the book came to an end.” “If you enjoy being shocked, you’ll like this. I know I did!” “Brilliant read. Captures you from the first chapter. Plays with your emotions.”

My favourite book is free on Amazon from 2nd-3rd August

Serena, plus her unusual friend and partner in crime, Tile X, find themselves suffering a family holiday at her eccentric grandfather’s hovel in Ireland. Who will manage to escape intact from their dramatic holiday from Hell?

Holiday for The Hostile, book 2 in The Hostile series, is a gripping contemporary paranormal crime thriller with a splash of horror. It’s my favourite book of the twelve I’ve written thus far. It can be read as a standalone like the other books in the collection. Book 1 in the series is called The Hostile, book 3 is The Hostile Game. Book 4, Confronting The Hostile, was published in August 2017 along with The Hostile Series Box Set.

Here’s a snapshot of what a few readers say about Holiday for The Hostile: “Compelling, strange, and wonderful”; “Ms. Mutter has carved out a new niche for herself. And from where I’m standing, she’s way out in front”; “With some books, you get an idea where things are going and where they’re likely to end. Not this one. Every chapter was a surprise with new characters and situations and a bunch of wonderfully inventive deaths;” “It has plenty of scary bits … can’t wait until the next book is out”; “The end is a total surprise. I was expecting a skeleton in the family closet, but it turns in a completely different direction, keeping you on your toes and guessing;” “Excellent. Really looking forward to more. Joy tells a good tale.”

The Kindle of A SLICE OF THE SEVENTIES is FREE on Amazon from 30th-31st May

A Slice of the Seventies FRONT cover HendrixA Slice of the Seventies tells the true story of Jersey-born Mug, a troubled girl from a recently broken home. It covers her experiences as a teenager at the Isle of Wight Music Festival in 1970, the same year she follows a guru. The book tracks her tumultuous four years as an art student in Coventry, where vegetarian Mug finds herself living next door to an abattoir and a railway shunting yard with David, a fellow art student. Dramatic events follow on from the evening they first meet at a party, where David is attempting to commit an extremely public suicide. Whether you were around during that decade or not, you’re bound to enjoy this nostalgic Slice of the Seventies. This loosely autobiographical book can be read as a stand-alone without having to read The Lying Scotsman, and Straws, books 2 and 3 in the Mug trilogy.

A Slice of the Seventies audiobook cover JPGAn audiobook edition of A Slice of the Seventies, beautifully narrated by Tracey Norman, is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

Doc Togden said in his review, “I have studied and written about this period of British cultural history and find this book completely delightful. Now you don’t need Dr Who’s TARDIS – you have A Slice of the Seventies.” “A thoroughly gripping read – it will make you boogie.”
