The short story Second Son features Jack Reacher at 13 years old and High Heat has Reacher as 16.

You have likely heard of the author Andrew Child due to the fact that he is writing the Jack Reacher series alongside Lee Child. The Jack Reacher series is one of the most popular book series in the world.

However this is not Andrew Childs first foray into writing. He has written numerous novels prior to this and even wrote his own character and book seried modeled after Jack Reacher.

Andrew Child is the pen name of author Andrew Grant. He is the brother of Jim Grant, who of course uses the pseudonym of Lee Child.

Andrew is 14 years younger than his brother as he was born in 1968 while Lee was born in 1954. Andrew is married to the author Tasha Alexander, who writes historical fiction and in particular, the Lady Emily series of novels.

Prior to the Jack Reacher series, Andrew Grant wrote every book under his real name. The first book he wrote was Even, which is the Reacher-like character. It is the David Trevellyan series. Trevellyan is an intelligence operative for the Royal Navy and much like Reacher is a loner.

In Even, Trevellyan discovers a murdered homeless man in an alley in New York City. Just as he is examining the body, the police pull up and he realizes that he has been set up by someone.

Andrew would write two more books in the series before retiring the character.

Next Andrew wrote the standalone novel Run, which is a more corporate thriller. Marc Bowman walks into his job at a big tech corporation only to discover he has been fired and is shunned and kicked out.

Prior to co-writing the Jack Reacher series with Lee Child, Andrew would write two more book series. He jumped into the detective genre and niche with the Detective Cooper Devereaux series. The first book in that is False Positive.

Cooper Devereaux is a detective in Alabama and in the first novel, he has to investigate the disappearance of a young boy who is seven years old. He’s just been removed from being suspended so he can investigate that and team up with a new person on the force, Jam Loflin. As he investigates he realizes there is a lot more to it than just a missing child.

Finally before jumping on board the Reacher series, he tried one more book series which was the Paul McGrath series. The first book in that one is Invisible. Paul McGrath is a veteran from the army who goes undercover in a federal courthouse by working as a janitor. This gives him free reign to access the entire building.

In early 2020, it was announced that Lee Child would be retiring and handing the reigns of the Jack Reacher series over to his brother Andrew.

The initial plans for the Jack Reacher series will see both Andrew and Lee Child write the Jack Reacher series together for a few books, before Andrew starts writing the series by itself.

For Reacher fans who are concerned about the quality of the books – while Andrew had a bit of a rocky start to his writing with his Trevellyan character being described as “Reacher on Steroids” – and I must admit he made Trevellyan look like Superman compared to Reacher looking like Clark Kent – over the years he has fine tuned his writing skills and the Paul McGrath series was very well received compared to his previous books.

Hopefully that bodes well for the Jack Reacher series going forward.
