Lee Child is the author of eleven Jack Reacher thrillers, including the New York Times bestsellers PERSUADER, THE ENEMY, ONE SHOT, THE HARD WAY and most recently, BAD LUCK AND TROUBLE. He was born in 1954 in Coventry, England, and after part-time work in the theater, he joined Granada Television in Manchester for an eighteen-year career as a presentation director. Always a voracious reader, he then wrote KILLING FLOOR, the first in the Jack Reacher series. KILLING FLOOR won both the Anthony and the Barry Awards for Best First Mystery, became a critical success and launched the series which only continues to grow in popularity. Since then, Child's novels have become top 5 New York Times bestsellers, with film rights optioned by Paramount Pictures. Foreign rights in the Jack Reacher series have been sold in thirty-nine territories, and there are more than 14 million copies in print of his novels worldwide. Child has dual residences – an apartment in Manhattan, and a country house in the south of France, plus whatever airplane cabin he happens to be in while traveling between the two. He's currently at work on his 12th Jack Reacher novel, NOTHING TO LOSE, which will be published by Delacorte Press in summer 2008.
