In my opinion, the world can be divided into two types of people: one happy to talk about themselves, and the other not. I belong to the latter category.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Herod S Pinkney and I'm in love with a girl called Daisy Lamprich.
I think that's enough to be going on with. Written in his own words, and guided by a man who collects glasses in a local pub, this is the story of Herod "Rod" Pinkney's search for Daisy Lamprich, a young woman he first sees on a decade-old episode of the Judge Judy Show, and who he now intends to marry. When Daisy is located in the coastal city of Huntington Beach, California, he travels there with his good friend and next-door neighbor, Donald, a man who once fought in the tunnels of Cu Chi during the Vietnam War and who now spends most of his time in Herod's basement. Herod is confident that the outcome will be favorable, but there's a problem. Will the course of true love ever run smoothly for this unlikely hero? A funny and touching story of an improbable and heart-warming quest to find true love, Daisy is perfect for fans of The Rosie Project and Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine.

About J. Paul Henderson

J. P. Henderson grew up in West Yorkshire, gained a Master's degree in American Studies and traveled to Afghanistan. He worked in a foundry, as a bus conductor, trained as an accountant and then, when the opportunity to return to academia arose, left for Mississippi, returning four years later with a doctorate in 20thC US History and more knowledge of Darlington Hoopes than was arguably necessary. (Hoopes was a Pennsylvanian socialist and the last presidential candidate of the American Socialist Party). American History departments were either closing or contracting, so he opted for a career in publishing, most of which was spent selling textbooks, in one position or other, for John Wiley & Sons.
