Deidre Allen Timmons is a hoot, the rare sort of writer who can turn something as serious as brain cancer into hilarity. Come for the laughs, stay for the feels. Brain Candy delivers!
~ Theo Pauline Nestor, Author, Writing Is My Drink
While fighting an aggressive brain tumor, Deirdre must care for her mother with advanced Alzheimer’s, raise her teenage daughter, and help her husband chase a new dream – opening a barbecue restaurant. Her greatest defense is her sense of humor in this tender memoir chronicling life struggles that are often tragic – but can still be very funny. Grab a tissue and take a ride as one batty broad battles her way through the tragicomic trials of her most perilous adventure yet – brain cancer.
Brain Candy is the disarmingly sweet and searing hero’s journey that tempers loss and love with breezy spirit and powerful strength. Loved it.
~ Kathleen Flinn, author of The Sharper The Knife, The Less You Cry
Timmons’ story is a cunning balance of straight comedy, dire tragedy, and universal love. Keep tissues nearby as Timmons’ odyssey tugs at your heartstrings and tickles your funny bone.
