With Glowing Hearts is the rousing true story of a group of Canadian gold miners' wives who came together in 1941 to stand up for better conditions for their families. These least-likely activists ended up as part of a continent-wide labour movement that lasted for decades and that created significant and lasting change in themselves and in the world around them.

Born in Ottawa, Jennifer spent most of her early years in Saskatoon. She has also lived and worked in Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, and, most recently, on Vancouver Island. Jennifer is the author of numerous plays including Beside Myself, also published by Scirocco Drama, and White Lies, published in the online literary journal Ryga: A Journal of Provocations. Her novel, Defying Gravity, was published by Coteau Books and nominated for three Saskatchewan Book Awards including Book of the Year . Jennifer has taught writing, worked as a dramaturge, and her theatre background includes many years working as a professional actor at theatres across Canada such as the Arts Club in Vancouver, Persephone, and Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, and Centaur Theatre in Montreal. She has also worked extensively in broadcast journalism and video production, including thirteen years with CBC News as a host and television journalist specializing in arts features and documentaries. Two of her plays have been presented as staged readings in New York at the Off-Broadway Obie award-winning theatre Urban Stages.

"Your heart will glow with pride in our history and fill with hope for our future. A "must see" for everyone, whether you are a social activist or not. Go celebrate this true story and leave inspired and challenged." -Barb Byers, Member of the Order of Canada, former Secretary-Treasurer of the Canadian Labour Congress
