Is author Lee Child and Lincoln Child the same?
- 10 years agoFavorite Answer
Lee Child is really author Jim Grant. Grant is a British thriller writer. Grant's younger brother Andrew Grant uses the pen name Lincoln Child. Andrew is also a thriller novelist. Hope this helps.Source(s): http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lee-Child/1034387796... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Child

NO. They are not related and they are not the same. Lee Child is Jim Grant, whose brother is Andrew Grant, who is NOT the same person as Lincoln Child. While they are all good authors, Lincoln Child is not only 11 years older, but he isn't British. Look up the wiki articles, and their personal websites. http://www.leechild.com/ and http://www.andrewgrantbooks.com/andrew.php (where you see he doesn't write under a pseudonym but under his own name) and lastly, here is the wiki on Lincoln Child http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Child along with his site with partner Douglas Preston http://www.prestonchild.com/ If you are going to make a statement like that perhaps you should check around a little bit first. If you look at their photos it is rather obvious they are not anywhere close to the same person

Lee Child (born 1954) is the pen name of British thriller writer Jim Grant. Though Grant was born in Coventry, England, his parents moved him and his three brothers to Handsworth Wood in Birmingham when he was four years old so they could get a better education, and his younger brother Andrew Grant is also a thriller novelist using the pseudonym Lincoln Child.

Lee Child writes the " Jack Reacher" books.
Lincoln Child (with Douglas Preston) writes the "Aloysius Pendergast" Books.
Read them both!!
