CALIFORNIA, February 6, 2015 – Horizon Bound Books, an imprint of HBE Publishing, is excited to announce that we have signed local Central Valley author Kara Lucas for her debut novel!

Kara Lucas was born and raised in the Central Valley of California, the eldest daughter of farmers. Her family has been farming the same piece of land for over 150 years. You could say that a love for the land and agriculture runs deep in her blood, and the landscapes she grew up with always end up in her books. Social work and a passion for kids in foster care have also always been in her blood. She has a Masters in Social Work and has been a social worker for over twenty years, from homeless shelters to counseling to CPS. She is in awe of many of the families she has worked with, especially the kids. The profound stories of their big hearts and strength are unforgettable, which is partly how FINDING PONY came to be written.
