Tig ColourAbout Tig

Tig Wallace grew up in a town between London and Oxford, where he spent the holidays as an underpaid runner on the James Bond movies. He started his publishing career interning at Penguin, HarperCollins, and Bloomsbury. After a brief and eye-opening experience at Condé Nast involving a dead dog and Cold War boiler suits, Tig joined the team at Penguin Children’s as editorial assistant, just before the merger with Random House.

Tig spent six years at PRH, working on books and brands including the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and the Waterstones Prize-shortlisted This Mortal Coil. Now a senior commissioning editor at Hachette, Tig works across middle grade, YA and crossover fiction, with authors including Mitch Johnson, Ben Brooks, and Leigh Bardugo.
