About the Founder
Growing up, Polyverse Founder, Louis Force Torres read everything he could find. He wrote, drew, and created stories. Money earned from mowing lawns went to the local bookstore to buy his favorite series – followed by editing the yearbook from 8th-12th grade.
After college, Louis studied cultural storytelling, mythology, and writing, before becoming Director of Publishing for an international business and leadership school. There he specialized in dual language contracts, content modernization, and distribution of over 200+ titles and formats across 52 countries and 22 languages.
In 2021 Louis decided to expand on his creative ambitions by founding Polyverse Publishing. As the leader of an independent publishing house, a business consultant, and book strategist, Louis now works with authors, artists, non-profits, and other publishing organizations to develop title catalogues, creative projects, and organize brands.
