Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Definitely the ability to have God-like powers. Wearing pyjamas to work is just the icing on the cake.
What are you working on next?
In 2015 I'm going against my usual manic writing style (I once wrote a 50,000-word first draft in three days) and forcing myself to write slowly. At the moment, that book is called "The Floating City". I'm not even outlining it yet, just researching and thinking.

Her carefully constructed serenity is ripped away a second time when her empath community is attacked from within. * This is a complete book, not a series. * Note: Contains some violence, including hitting and emotional abuse of a child. My estimated rating is PG.

Smashwords book reviews by Felicity Banks

    I really enjoyed this book, and long to read the next in the series. Wazmut is a sympathetic and multi-layered character who keeps a male voice and perspective. . . even when being ogled in his rather nice host body. He's heroic enough to be genuinely likeable, but self-serving enough (and mistake-prone enough) to feel like a real person. I really enjoyed the exploration of his experiences as an elderly man in a woman's body - not just the usual cliché of feeling people aren't taking him seriously (while simultaneously taking advantage of his ability to distract young men) but also the way his relationships change with his closest friends. The magic system of the world has just enough complexity that I can appreciate Wamzut's creative use of the different aspects. The world is a comfortable fit for any reader of medieval fantasy, but it doesn't feel like a ripoff of Tolkien or CS Lewis, which I appreciate. Given the recent release of The Hobbit movie, the lack of dwarves is particularly welcome.
