A TALL STORY: Heather Martin on Lee Child.

Life Sentences Podcast

Never before has a thriller writer had a biography written by a literary academic. But Lee Child is a global phenomenon who defies easy categorisation and Australian scholar Heather Martin is not only a fan, but convinced that he has real heft, earning him a spot among some serious heavy hitters. In this episode, she maps the trajectory of how Lee Child created his hero Jack Reacher in his own image to a seamless degree. She sleuths Child’s unpromising loveless childhood, his lifelong addictions, his desire for revenge of past wrongs, and his shrewd, strategic approach to every aspect of becoming a bestseller. Produced by David Roach for Two Heads media and Jennifer Macey. Music composed and performed by Amanda Brown and produced by Lilly Pilli.  This podcast is made on Dharrawal country.

This is the third and final episode of our book club on Lee Child's first novel Killing Floor, the novel that introduced Jack Reacher.

I will also be reading some quotes I highlighted from Reacher Said Nothing by Andy Martin, a book I'm reading in parallel in which Andy Martin watches Lee Child write a Jack Reacher novel.For this series, I'm joined by Koen Frolichs, fellow PhD student in the same lab that I'm in.Podcast linksWebsite: https://bjks.buzzsprout.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/BjksPodcastKoen's linksGoogle Scholar: https://scholar.google.de/citations?user=E65Fv74J0ywCTwitter: https://twitter.com/koenfusedBen's linksWebsite: www.bjks.blog/Google Scholar: https://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=-nWNfvcAAAAJ  Twitter:  https://twitter.com/bjks_tweetsReferencesJocko Willink's video 'GOOD': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdTMDpizis8The Guardian article on not dating people who like Reacher: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2021/may/06/i-couldnt-be-with-someone-who-liked-jack-reacher-can-our-taste-in-books-help-us-find-love

Writing Spontaneously with the #1 NY Times creator of Jack Reacher, Lee Child

Writers, Ink

Bestseller Lee Child preaches the idea of writing spontaneously. By rejecting traditional outlining and instead drawing on decades of reading experience to write in the moment, he creates stories that feel free-flowing and realistic. Lee is an accomplished thriller writer known for his bestselling Jack Reacher series, following a retired serviceman as he accepts strange jobs across the country. His latest publication, How to Write a Mystery, which he edited with Laurie R. King for the Mystery Writers of America, is available today. From Amazon.com: Lee Child is one of the world's leading thriller writers. He was born in Coventry, raised in Birmingham, and now lives in New York. It is said one of his novels featuring his hero Jack Reacher is sold somewhere in the world every nine seconds. His books consistently achieve the number-one slot on bestseller lists around the world and have sold over one hundred million copies. Two blockbusting Jack Reacher movies have been made so far. He is the recipient of many awards, most recently Author of the Year at the 2019 British Book Awards. He was appointed CBE in the 2019 Queen's Birthday Honours. Whether you’re traditionally published or indie, writing a good book is only the first step in becoming a successful author. The days of just turning a manuscript into your editor and walking away are gone. If you want to succeed in today’s publishing world, you need to understand every aspect of the business - editing, formatting, marketing, contracts. It all starts with a good book, then the real work begins. Join international bestselling author J.D. Barker and indie powerhouses, J. Thorn and Zach Bohannon, as they gain unique insight and valuable advice from the most prolific and accomplished authors in the business.
