Overview

"Today there would be no slamming door. Keith's grumbling is silenced. He and Brandy are both dead. Sarah Thomas was sitting alone in the middle of her clean home." So begins the tale of a broken woman, struggling to move past a history of violence and loss. Soon, a new opportunity drops into her life, along with the promise of a fresh start. But, some new beginnings cannot happen until we let go of the past. Well, Sarah's past is one that refuses to die. In fact, it is haunting her in the eyes of her new abusive employers. She sees herself in the abused women she meets. Sarah also sees a chance to stop the cycle of violence for good. Domestics chronicles a wounded woman's struggle to end the silent suffering of domestic violence. She justifies the means by the ends, becoming an assassin in housekeeper's clothing to avenge the victims. As Sarah brutally punishes the violent offenders, she becomes a freedom fighter for the abused. However, too late does she realize that she just may be the one who needs liberating.

Smoke
Have you ever wanted something so badly, that you'd die for it? Charlie Daniels does. He just doesn't know it yet. "Smoke" throws a nicotine craving into a pot of madness, stir in incompetence, inflated egos and fear to get one darkly comedic story of a cigarette break, miles up in the blue skies.

Editorial Reviews

C.A. Webb
Author Jo Davis scores big with the novel DOMESTICS tackling among other things domestic violence, issues of self-esteem and justice. Her main character Sarah Thomas is sure to be remembered as a symbol for a larger more potent issue that needs to be addressed: Do two wrongs make a right?

Taking us into the life of a woman who has made a decision that she is not just a survivor but an instrument against evil as well, Davis puts us in the position to decide not only is she right or wrong

Walks up to Valerie and asks "do you mind if my pokemon play with your mewtwo?", then sends out mew, suicune, ninetales, salamence, luxray, gardevoir, celebi, and charizard while saying "All right, come on out!". She then looks at Valerie expectantly.
