Inspired by the author’s experience, Who’s Your Daddy, Baby? is the story of Lori Pomay, a happily married career woman living in suburban Washington, D.C. Lori undergoes genetic testing for in vitro fertilization and her world is rocked when she is told the dad she always knew could not possibly have been her biological father. This mid-life shocker sends her into an alternately hilarious, heartwarming, and heartbreaking search for truth about her heritage – from Appalachian Cherokees to a Purple King, with high-rolling gamblers, car dealers, dentists, and all manner of older, confused amnesiacs along for the ride. It’s a mystery that should appeal to those searching for their roots, with DNA testing foibles and myths of history exposed.
