MIDDLEBURG, Pa., April 28 (UPI) -- Some parents at a Pennsylvania school said they were upset to learn a high school English teacher has a second job writing erotic romance novels.

The parents said they recently discovered Judy Buranich, a teacher at Midd West High School in Middleburg, uses the name Judy Mays to write erotic romance novels, WNEP-TV, Moosic, reported Wednesday.

"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," parent Deanna Stepp said.

Wendy Apple said she has a 10th-grade son in Buranich's class.

"Now my son knows so how is he thinking when he's sitting in her class knowing what she does on the side," she said.

The school superintendent said the district cannot "discuss personnel matters or employees."

WNEP said it was unable to reach Buranich for comment.
