They thought it was about time to have a kid. No big deal. Until it was. Then their lives went from fooling around to hormone shots, test tubes, embarrassing doctor visits, and more. But there’s no sad, mopey story here. Tom LaMarr handles the journey to fatherhood like he handles the rest of life – with enough humor to make even the most stoic wanna-be-dad laugh with recognition. Follow this funny father on his quest to become the one thing that eluded him: becoming the someone she calls “Daddy.”

About the Author:

The median age for becoming a parent has climbed, and author Tom LaMarr is the reason. The "Geezer Dad" author was nearly 48 when he met his daughter, which makes him even older now. He is also the author of two acclaimed novels. "October Revolution," hailed by three separate publications as “a remarkable first novel,” prompted "Catch-22" author Joseph Heller to write, “Got back home and read your novel with much ease, excitement, and pleasure. I found it ‘a lighthearted, dandy satire with a humorous plot and a variety of deft pops at many deserving targets.’ And you can quote me.” "Hallelujah City" also received favorable reviews, including this from Publishers Weekly: “LaMarr has created a hectic, full-bodied account of a troubled young lady enmeshed in a bizarre religious cult... The plot is stocked with enough tension to hook readers until the chaotic, fiery climax.” The Boulder Camera noted, “'Hallelujah City,' like LaMarr’s debut novel, is a fast and funny read. Humor isn’t easy to pull off, but LaMarr does it effortlessly... Yet 'Hallelujah City' is a melancholy novel, a meditation on mistakes that can never really be unmade. That tension, between laughter and tears, makes it deeper and more complex than many a New York Times bestseller.” After growing up on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River in Dubuque, Iowa, Tom lived and worked in Council Bluffs and Des Moines, then Jacksonville, Florida (where he met his wife), and the District of Columbia. He studied at the University of Iowa Fiction Writers Workshop, and has called Colorado home for more than two decades.
