Meet Author Jen Gilroy
Jen Gilroy lives in a small town in Ontario, Canada. She’s worked in higher education and
international marketing but, after spending too much time in airports and away from her family,
traded the 9-5 to write contemporary romance and women’s fiction to bring readers’ hearts
home. Jen likes ice cream, diners, vintage style and all things country. Her husband is her real-
life romance hero, and her teen daughter teaches her to cherish the blessings in the everyday.
The Cottage at Firefly Lake, the first book in her Firefly Lake series, was a finalist for Romance
Writers of America’s Golden Heart® award in 2015. It was also shortlisted for the Romantic
Novelists’ Association Joan Hessayon Award 2017.
