BOOK INTRO: Double Insanity

Double Insanity is a gritty detail of a couple's tumultuous relationship and domestic drama. Filled with strong language and dark humor, Karen Thompkins chronicles in a raw, yet entertaining way, the disturbing events and bizarre behaviors that take place in this emotional roller coaster romance.

Jewel, a registered nurse with a sharp-tongue, becomes romantically involved with Tony, a violent ex-con, who just finished serving five years in prison for aggravated assault. Despite Tony’s abusive behavior in the beginning of the relationship, Jewel becomes pregnant by him and the two marry. These two insane individuals are intertwined in the vicious cycle of violence, humiliation, and makeup sex- known as the“sick dance.”

Having been raised in an abusive household, Jewel sees Tony's violent behavior as normal and tolerates it for seven years. However, it is Tony’s infidelity that leads Jewel to snap and copy her lover’s twisted, violent actions. In this revenge thriller, Jewel risks everything for the love of Tony, including her freedom.

Karen Thompkins, a survivor of domestic abuse, is defining the very essence of what it means to triumph over adversity. Self publishing her first book entitled Double Insanity via her small press Karter Publishing, Double Insanity (April, 2009) is an intimate look at a couple entangled in the world of domestic violence. With the release of her novel, Karen plans for a multi-city tour that will lay the foundation for her domestic abuse awareness campaign launching this summer, and will continue far beyond the month of October (Domestic Abuse Awareness month).Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the youngest of nine children, Karen graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.
