Wilbur Smith
Wilbur Addison Smith is a South African novelist who has written a landmark novel about international engagement in South Africa for four centuries, seen from the perspective of black and white families. As a trained accountant, he received a film contract with the first published novel When the Lion Feeds. This encouraged him to become a full-time writer, and he developed three long chronicles of the South African experience that all became bestsellers. He still admits his editor Charles Pick's advice to "write about what you know best", and his work has plenty of authentic details about the hunting and mining lifestyles in the field and the romance and conflicts that come with it. In 2014, his 35 published novels have sold more than 120 million copies, including 24 million in Italy.
