October is Domestic Violence month. Did you know: Approximately 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually in the United States. We will address this issue while talking with world known author Nikkea Smithers about her newly released novel, Domestic. Her research & understanding about Domestic abuse will guide our discussion & offer some insight into this horrible act. Nikkea Smithers is a dynamic writer and spoken word artist originally from Connecticut currently residing in Richmond, VA. She has released several novels and poetry compilations. Her writing style is unique as she uses her ability to play on words throughout each project. Her novels flair with the explicit details of life told through her characters eyes. Her novel Sweet Dreams shot up the Essence Magazine’s Best Sellers List within five months of its release proving that her stories are provocative, fresh and truthful making her reader’s lifelong fans. Two of her books (Keith’s Story & Attitudes of a Woman) have been awarded with the Literary Hallmark & Legends Top Books 2009 award by Black Pearls Magazine. Her readers have fallen in love with her ‘tell it like it is’ approach to writing and she has been crowned ‘Author of the Year’ for 2008 by Xander Magazine. Nikkea’s books address issues that need to be discussed but are not overly saturated making her stand out in the literary industry. She is also the president of the award winning Readers With Attitude Bookclub which has been recognized as a force to be reckoned with in the literary industry.
