Author Spotlight- Joyce Tremel

I am thrilled to be spotlighting Joyce Tremel today. Joyce is the author of To Brew or Not to Brew( A Brewing Trouble Mystery). Released on December 1st 2015 it will have you hooked from the start. The next one in the series is coming out on October 4th and is called Tangled up in Brew. Don't miss this series is it really good.

Joyce Tremel was a police secretary for ten years and more than once envisioned the demise of certain co-workers, but settled on writing as a way to keep herself out of jail. Her flash fiction has appeared in Mysterical-e, and her non-fiction has been published in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police magazine.

Her debut novel, TO BREW OR NOT TO BREW has been nominated for a 2015 Reviewers’ Choice Award for best amateur sleuth by Romantic Times. The second book in the series TANGLED UP IN BREW, is scheduled for release 10.4.2016.

Joyce is a native Pittsburgher, has two grown sons, and lives in a suburb of the city with her husband and a spoiled cat. When coming up with the idea for this series, she thought her big city with the small town feel would be the perfect setting for Max's brew pub. She hopes "yinz" guys agree!
