The Daily Mail reports that an English teacher at a Middleburg, Pennsylvania high school has a much racier job when she's outside the classroom - and some parents are none to pleased with the revelation:
A group of high school parents have complained to their local education board after discovering a quiet English teacher writes racy, erotic novels when she's not working with their children.
They are asking that the board investigates the matter and presents Judy Buranich with a choice: either quit teaching or quit writing the books.
Mrs Buranich has taught at the Midd West High School in Middleburg, Pennsylvania, for nearly 25 years.
But recently parents and students found out that outside of class she is Judy Mays, author of titles such as A Breath of Heat, Undercover Heat, and Rednecks 'N' Romance.
The books, which feature aliens, vampires and werewolves, are freely available at web sites such as Amazon.com and at book chain stores such as Waldenbooks.
But for the parents, the racy novels are just a little too racy.
Have a gander at some samples of her work:
Scranton's WNEP-TV talked with parents and students at the school:
Parent Wendy Apple has a son in 10th grade at Midd West High School in Middleburg. His English teacher's name is Judy Buranich. Apple said she recently found out that after school Buranich has a second job; she writes erotic romance novels.
"Now my son knows so how is he thinking when he's sitting in her class knowing what she does on the side," Apple said. She added she found all of the information on the internet. Apple said Buranich writes under the pen name Judy Mays.
If you go to Judy May's website she said she's disguised as a mild-mannered tenth grade English teacher in a small public high school. If you want to get in contact with her you are asked to write to a post office box in Selinsgrove.
A photograph of Buranich matches a YouTube interview in which she talks about her novels.
Parent Deanna Stepp said the evidence is clear. "She is teaching children that are under the age of 18 and definitely the books that she is writing are adult books. I think she needs to make a decision as to what she wants to do. Either be a school teacher or author," Stepp said.
"I was shocked. If you are a teacher you shouldn't be doing that," said former student Shanette Apple.
"I was sort of shocked.Sitting in her class I had no idea. She is a good teacher but I had no idea what was going on behind the scenes," said former student Drew Hollenbach.
