Alexander McCall Smith is having a pretty good career. And it’s about to get even better.

McCall Smith is the author of the popular series of novels relating the Botswana-based adventures of Precious Ramotswe and The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. There are 10 books in the series and on March 29, his characters become flesh and blood with the premiere of an HBO show based on Smith’s books.

The latest book in The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, The Miracle at Speedy Motors, was published on March 10, and the next one, Tea Time for the Traditionally Built, will follow on April 21.

And this isn’t even McCall Smith’s only series! He also writes: 44 Scotland Street; the “Isabel Dalhousie” novels and the Portuguese Irregular Verbs series.

So it’s a good time to be Alexander McCall Smith. And you can bet there are more than a few novelists out there who would give their right, um, index finger to be him right about now.
