Name: Sweetbriar - a kind of flower; Rosa rubiginosa, part of the family Rosaceae, genus Rosa (includes all kinds of roses).
Bio: Writer. Educator. Feminist. Sister. Music lover. Spiritual. Realist.
Graduate from an all-women's college (though not the one whose name is my pen-name; that, I consider a bit of coincidental greatness). Creative Writing BA, Education MA.
I teach at a middle school as my day job. In spare time, I love to write and read, listen to a vast variety of music, and pursue knowledge.
Enjoy what I write; I put a lot of effort into it. Constructive criticism is always greatly appreciated. As flattering as praise is, I also like to hear what can be improved on.
