White-Boucke Publishing was founded by Colin White and Laurie Boucke in 1989 in Glendale,
California, as a part-time venture offering technical documentation services to local industry and
machine stenography services to local insurance and medical concerns. They published their first
commercial book "The UnDutchables" that year and it soon became a European bestseller - a status
that it continues to hold. This early success enabled them to develop White-Boucke Publishing into a
full-time business and thus expand both the book publishing and stenography activities.
The premier road manager, Phil Kaufman, honored them with his autobiography "Road Mangler
Deluxe," in 1993. This offering immediately enhanced White-Boucke’s standing in the book world by
receiving excellent reviews in major US publications such as The Washington Post, The Los Angeles
Times and Entertainment Weekly, in addition to being a Tower Records bestseller up until the chain’s
bankrupcy in 2006. The book has since been featured on radio shows countrywide, and the author has
appeared on national TV (including "Donahue" and various Spike/TNN programs). The titles that
followed have all been a commercial success - White-Boucke has never forced a title out of print.
In 1994, White-Boucke Publishing relocated to Colorado and transitioned from a loose partnership to a
formal corporation. In this capacity, the company continues to offer unique, lively works of non-fiction,
often with a strong element of humor, and are also developing a series of reference works for Court
Reporters - a very specialized field. The philosophy is to be highly objective in selecting subject matter,
and to give each book a unique presentation: from cover design to inside layout. Consequently, very
few new titles are published by White-Boucke.
As an additional yet equally important activity, the company provides a wide range of audio-video
services under the “videoflyr” (advertising/promotional creations) and “TeamCOLINDA” (video/DVD
production and website design) brands.
