After a 39-year run, and five years after the death of its founder, New Horizon Press is passing the torch to Armin Lear Press, a young Colorado-based company.

I wanted to transfer these outstanding titles to someone who'd worked closely with Joan and respected her work.”

— T.J. Dermot Dunphy, Owner, New Horizon Press

BOULDER, CO, UNITED STATES, February 1, 2021 / — In closing its doors today after 39 years, New Horizon Press is transferring ten titles to new publisher Armin Lear Press as part of a buy-out. The publisher has released all rights to the rest of its list to the authors.

Driven by the vision and talents of its widely respected founder and editor-in-chief, Dr. Joan S. Dunphy, the company focused on true crime as well as psychological and social problems, women’s and men’s issues, and parenting advice written by experts with credentials in their fields. In 1992, NHP introduced Small Horizons, the illustrated children’s “Let’s Talk” series that teaches crisis coping, tolerance and service skills.

“Joan Dunphy mentored me in this business beginning in spring of 1994,” noted Maryann Karinch, Founder of Armin Lear, whose first of 33 commercially published books was a New Horizon Press title. “She soon became a trusted colleague and a beloved friend.”

Dr. Dunphy passed away in October 2015, with the company sustaining support for existing titles under the leadership of T.J. Dermot Dunphy.

“I wanted to transfer these outstanding titles to someone who'd worked closely with Joan and respected her work,” said Dunphy.
