About Us

Torquere Press Inc. started as a labor of love for two romance writers and readers. In business since September of 2003, Torquere began as a general partnership, and has grown over the last decade into a much larger organization.

While many publishers out there in 2003 were putting out e-books, very few were publishing gay and lesbian romance. The mission of Torquere Press was, and is, to provide readers who love a good story with great books, and to promote gay and lesbian romance as a genre to be reckoned with.

Partners Kristi Boulware and Joanna Talbot would like to welcome all readers and authors to explore the Torquere Press website, and to contact us with any questions and comments you may have at torquere@torquerepress.com.

Kristi Boulware: Kristi is a Texas girl through and through. Sharing a home with her partner in life and business, Joanna Talbot, seven dogs and our children. Kristi works in her spare time with several animal rescues as animals are one of her passions in life. We have a life full of love, laughter and work. Kristi has spent the last several years working with Torquere Press to grow it into a successful publishing company of LGBT romance. In 2014 the decision was made for our previous co-owners to focus on their writing so the business became a partnership between Joanna and Kristi. Kristi has been managing business of all sorts for twenty years and plans to continue the growth of Torquere Press.

Joanna Talbot: Joanna grew up in a family that always had a retail business until mid 2014. Through her families businesses she learned about the ways of retail, advertising and marketing and the importance of good customer service. Joanna thrives on finding new and exciting ways to share the things she loves with anyone and everyone. She has her own business making all natural beauty products that she is very passionate about and focuses on in her spare time. Joanna is very excited to start this new chapter in her life with her new family, and her Torquere family and readers.
