Marian studied journalism at Carleton University and went on to produce historical documentaries. In 1996 she published her first book of poetry, Skinny Dipping. Marian is also the owner and operator of Fire Crown Productions, a Canadian film company. Marian enjoys the opportunity to share her work at home in St. John's, Newfoundland or wherever her work takes her. 

Fire Crown is a Canadian Film and Video Entertainment company that incorporated under the laws of Newfoundland, Canada in 2002. It is designed to produce, direct, write, photograph, perform, manage and market original films, videos, books, and live performances. Through its productions, Fire Crown endeavors to entertain, educate and provide information to the public and private sector. Fire Crown promotes the artistic talents of artists and provides an outlet for artists and their work. We strive to provide the physical and creative support for artists to develop and work on quality films and videos.

Fire Crown is owned and operated by Marian Frances White and is run by a board of directors who oversee the activities of the company. Fire Crown has produced several successful, award-winning films including Tricksters, a film that takes the viewer to the remote Innu aboriginal communities of Labrador where they celebrate their aboriginal culture. In October 2005, Fire Crown released Stealing Mary, a CSI-style docu drama about the demise of the Beothuk Indians of Newfoundland. Fire Crown has two other films to its credit that include Fool Proof, a history of clown and circus life and an historical docu-drama called The Untold Story of the suffragists of Newfoundland.

We are currently working on an animated film, Sights before Christmas, and a TV mini series, Father's Pride.
