MEET THE AUTHOR!

Ms. Joy Moulter is a substitute teacher here at Innovation. What many people don't know is that she is a former science teacher and a published author! Last year she published a book called "Sweetheart" about her beloved cat who passed away in 2015. The book describes the unbreakable bond Ms. Moulter had with her kitty and is a tribute to her memory. The book also contains helpful information about pet services such as medical issues and grief counseling. Sweetheart's Facebook page videos have over 28,000 views. If you'd like to check it out, go to joymoulter@facebook.com. The book is for sale on Amazon.com and at barnesandnoble.com.
