Donna Woolfolk Cross graduated cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of Pennsylvania in 1969 with a B.A. in English. She moved to London, England, after graduation and worked as an editorial assistant for a small publishing house on Fleet Street, W.H. Allen and Company. Upon her return to the United States, Cross worked at Young and Rubicam, a Madison Avenue advertising firm, before going on to graduate school at UCLA where she earned a master's degree in Literature and Writing in 1972. (From the publisher.)
See interesting New York Times article, 5/28/2001, about how Cross has been reaching out to book clubs on her own (bypassing publishers) to talk about Pope Joan. Also see her Pope Joan website.
