…enters the literary world with a bang
Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 2, 2009
Wendy Coakley-Thompson, the author RT Bookclub proclaimed "…enters the literary world with a bang" with her award-nominated debut novel Back to Life, returns with Triptych, which examines death and infidelity, straight up - with an erotic twist.
Ally and Jonathan have been married for ten years. They share a close relationship with Jonathan's cousin Tim, whom Ally dated when they were both teenagers. Tim, now a grieving widower, is present when they receive the news that Jonathan has a highly malignant inoperable brain tumor. While they minister to Jonathan, Ally and Tim recognize that there is chemistry - still - between them. Unable to help themselves, they act on their carnal attraction. Just as guilt consumes them, Jonathan enters the mix, presenting Tim with an unorthodox proposition….
Coakley-Thompson, in her commitment to making cancer and its suffering a historical footnote, has promised half of Triptych's net proceeds the following two organizations that provide underserved populations with access to cancer treatment and related services: The Cancer Society of the Bahamas and 365 Pink Foundation. With this gesture, Coakley-Thompson uses art as philanthropy to contribute to a future in which cancer plays absolutely no part.
