About Us

Thirteen Below Press was founded in January of 2015 by two fellow authors fed up with the run around. We keep our author pool small in order to give each author and their story the time and attention deserved. From light feel good reads to the dark depths of a slave filled world Thirteen Below publishes the whole spectrum of emotion.

We are based in Houston, Texas.


Lor Rose | Founder, President, CEO, Director of Public Relations, Director of Operations, Art Director

If it was the one thing I swore I’d never wanted when I started out in this publishing game it was to become involved on the publishing side of things. Now? I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thirteen Below Press was long in coming and I’m proud to call this little company mine.

Tracey Steinbach | Vice President, CFO, Acquisitions Manager

My dream has always been to read for a living. I fell into writing on a whim, but it quickly became a dream, too. With Thirteen Below Press, two dreams are being realized at the same time. Now, I’m going to help you realize your dream.


Tracey Steinbach | Acquisitions Manager

I’m an avid reader, wife, mother of three and full-time cost accountant. I’ve been reading novels since my early teens. Nora Roberts, Johanna Lindsay and Dean Koontz were my faves then. Now, I read anything from YA to Erotica. Send me your submission. I can’t wait to read it!

K. Davis | Team Member

K. Davis grew up in a small town in western Nebraska. She is a stay-at-home army wife and the mother of two beautiful little girls. She loves reading anything from Harry Potter to erotic romance.

Editing Department

Jason Bradley | Editor

I’m 35 and live in Ft Worth, TX with my longtime partner and our teenage daughter. Although my degree is in Psychology, I’m a full-time editor as well as a writer. Besides work, I enjoy cooking, all things geeky, and collecting antique books.

JoAnne Soper-Cook | Editor

JoAnne Soper-Cook is 48 years old and lives in North America’s oldest city, St. John’s, Newfoundland, with Paul, her husband of 27 years and their spoiled rotten dogter Lola, a chihuahua mix with strong opinions. When she’s not editing she writes crime, gothic and noir as J.S. Cook. She is a walking maniac who enjoys jazz, gin gimlets, and the novels of Raymond Chandler and Megan Abbott.

 Art Department

Lor Rose | Art Director

I dabble in the arts but I’m not on the level as my artists. I’m just a mediator and schedule keeper.

Lou Harper | Head Artists

Lou Harper spends most her time chained to her desk either writing or designing. It’s no surprise she’s gone loopy and started talking about herself in the third person. She’s mostly harmless and responds well to treats and soft words, but should not be approached before her morning cup of coffee.
