Jennifer White


When not spending her time traipsing around in the woods, Jennifer enjoys taking care of her family. She is married and has three children, and often jokes that she was born in the wrong era. She grew up just outside of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, and has a fierce love for the foggy old city. For as long as she can remember, Jennifer has been involved in the arts; she writes, is a trained musician, and has been performing in community musicals for many years. Five years ago, she relocated to Happy Valley - Goose Bay to pursue a teaching career.

She holds degrees in Folklore and English, Intermediate/Secondary Education, and Leadership Studies. She also has a Certificate in Newfoundland Studies and a Diploma in Technology Education.

Smashwords Interview

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I generally look for local writers or subject matter first. I may hear about an author or book via some media, and will seek it out online. From there, I proceed to my favourite ebook retailer.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wrote a fairy tale (complete with a princess and a castle) in the second grade. I even did my own illustrations back then! At age ten I won my first writing award, and didn't look back. I was hooked from the first time I saw my name in print.

Set in Newfoundland, this is the story of strong women who are thrown together because of unthinkable circumstances. A lonely old lady who spends her time wrapped in memories of a time long gone. A teenager facing decisions that no child should have to make, with no support from her own mother. Sometimes strength skips a generation, and love binds through the ages.
