Wade Lucas is a twelve year employee of Random House and an avid reader. Raised without television, reading was a huge priority in his childhood home, and it only makes sense that he’d end up working in the book industry. The very first book that captured his imagination was The Wind in the Willows. In his past, Lucas has worked in the music industry, retail, and various coffee shops. He has been nominated for Publishers Weekly Rep of the Year twice, and is the recipient of the Random House Outstanding Performance Award. Lucas' favorite authors include David Mitchell, China Mieville, Kelly Link, and P.G. Wodehouse.
