PRLog - Jan. 16, 2014 - PITTSBURGH -- Phantasm Books, Assent Publishing’s fantasy imprint, announces that we have signed Joyce Hertzoff, author of The Crimson Orb. Joyce Hertzoff earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the City University of New York, and spent forty-five years in the scientific information publishing business as a translator and indexer. For twenty years, she was a manager of other scientists and watched as the business evolved from the printing of paper journals to electronic processing and production. After retiring in 2008 and moving to the southwest with her husband, she left scientific writing behind and turned her efforts to fiction. She participated in the National Novel Writing program for the first time that year and has continued with the program every year since. She is a member of Southwest Writers and Writers Village University. Her short mystery, Natural Causes, appears in the anthology The Darwin Murders and a fantasy short story, Princess Petra, will be included in the anthology The Way Back.
