Meet Rosa, the main character of my novel Emerald Drive. She is a shy and nervous, 27 year old new high school English teacher who has always done as her parents have told her. Afraid to disobey and realize her parents's worst nightmares, Rosa instead plays if safe and lives the life of a good daughter. She goes to church every Saturday with her family and does her best to be a good first year teacher. Life seems to be going according to plan but somehow Rosa still feels unfulfilled.
