Cancer Time Bomb

Purchase e-book at Amazon

Purchase paperback at Amazon“Cancer Time Bomb is anything but depressing…the book offers an intimate, messy and at times hilarious family portrait.”
– J Weekly
San Francisco

Cancer Time Bomb is just as frank as its title implies, and though the specific subject matter is the BRCA gene and Burnette’s resultant oophorectomy and masectomy, the themes of anxiety, courage and family are universal.”
– Gabe Meline
Bohemian, Marin/Sonoma/Napa counties, CA

“A brave story.”
– Michelle Marques
KSRO, Santa Rosa

“No matter how angry, bitter, profane, hopeful and crazy-brave her book reveals the (author) to be, Burnette never reneges on her promise to tell the truth…”
– Press Democrat
Santa Rosa, CA

“It’s compelling”
– Henry Tenenbaum
KRON-TV, San Francisco

– Sara Strand, book reviewer
Sara’s Organized Chaos
