About Crystal Publications

Crystal Publications is a partnership of Jerry Cross and Pauline Bondonno. Our choices of publications reflect our deep interest in our three children, our years of experience as educators and extensive culturally motivated travels including Europe, Mexico and Africa.


Jerry has been teaching psychology in college for over 30 years, including teaching internationally in London and Florence, Italy. Pauline is a writer and a journalist by training. Our new book, Pinocchio, is a result of living in Italy for five months and trying to bring back some of Italy in the form of literature and art.
