Joe Garrick is the author of "Whose Hoof Is That?" and a North Carolina native. Joe grew up in Hickory, NC and attended "THE" Appalachian State University. Joe currently works in sales for a data analytics company in the healthcare industry. Joe is also an aspiring custom hat maker and the occasional wedding officiant.
Joe has always had a love for music, especially for rap and hip hop (and he even has a little musical talent himself). Though Joe's hip hop career hasn't quite taken off yet, he thought it would be nice to transition those creative skills into a different avenue that will hopefully reach a lot of people. Joe loves to make others laugh and the goal of this book is to do just that. Oh yeah, and it may also help the kids learn something.
