Wilbur Smith following Shakespeare by using co-authors

Wilbur Smith has published 31 books, including bestsellers like When the Lion Feeds, The River God and The Triumph of the Sun.

Vicious Circle is his latest work and he has plans for six new books.

He told BBC Breakfast that he might work with other writers - "William Shakespeare had Bacon and Marlowe writing his books for him".
