Lee Child (whose real name is Jim Grant) is the author of popular thrillers. He only started writing in 1997, at age 43, after losing his job in television. In 2013, the Daily Mail newspaper reported that Child smoked weed while writing. He replied, according to Wikipedia, “In Britain, that's not a newspaper, you know, that's a scandal sheet where they make stuff up. It's not very reliable. And certainly I don't deny smoking the occasional joint, but I don't work when I'm stoned because you don't get much done that way."
