Wilbur Smith turned 80 this month but far from even thinking about retiring, this Zambia-born octogenarian has recently signed a new six-book deal.

Six books! That would be a life-time achievement for the vast majority of authors but the commission will merely add to the 30 plus titles already penned by Smith.

The best-selling author has sold more than 122 million books in the past 50 years and several have attracted filmmakers including his latest novel “Those in Peril.”

We can expect its sequel “Vicious Circle” over the coming months, and then Smith gets to work on that six-book deal.

We know his first offering will be released at Christmas and will build on his wildly popular Egyptian series – a return maybe of the extraordinarily talented eunuch slave Taita?

We also know that under this new deal Wilbur Smith will, for the first time, work with a co-author. What does that mean?

It’s just one of many questions I’ll be asking Wilbur Smith when I catch up with him for an interview later today. What would you like to know?

U.S. President Barack Obama has been inaugurated for a second term in front of a crowd of more than half a million people in Washington and millions more watching around the world. He declared that this is America's moment – setting out a second term agenda in which he promised action on climate change, health care, and gay rights.

While there were no real surprises, this was a president speaking from the heart – putting a nation on notice that he is a leader who plans to get things done in the time he has left in office. And as Beyonce belted out the National Anthem – few will have been left in any doubt that the 44th president means what he says.

This is Obama's moment. Whether he seizes it – only the next four years will tell.
