It appears like these "women" need to get a life. These students wouldn't have known the woman wrote romance novels unless their parents told them. It's nobody's business what she writes. And if people only could choose ONE job in their life to do at any given time there wouldn't BE any novels these days - because most authors have 2 jobs. Clueless. Just clueless. These children now can't concentrate in class. Who's fault is that? Not the author/teacher's! She kept quiet!

This is another example of a witch hunt by crazy Fundies in this area. The woman is a writer, she is not a prostitute. "Novel", means fiction, and romance novels have been around forever. Jealousy, and ignorance make hyper-religious people do stupid things.

I heard about this over the radio this morning and was shocked... I will never understand how truly ignorant people can be. She writes romance books... so what! Is she making the students read them? No. Did she use a pseudonym? Yes. To me that shows that she was trying to keep her teaching and writing as two separate things. So what business is it of anyone what she does in her spare time. I have an eleven year old little boy and I would be proud to call her my sons English teacher. It looks like she knows what she is talking about.

Wow....you mean this kinda of stuff really happens in the United States? A school teacher who write , oh and sells, romance novels....hmmm. Could it be that this teacher has a grip on a higher form of education and is using it to add another positive accomplishment to her resume? She can teach at Greenwood School District and teach my kids. Come to think about it, maybe everyone offended just can't read all the big words she uses. "brb w/my wd...lol mb roflmaop!" They probably understood the previous sentence filled with garabage! Let he alone! Maybe, just maybe she will be nice and even get kids to spell correctly or even use proper tense in sentence structures. She is an example of teaching be example and we need to praise these kind of teachers instead of persecute them. If she is not intruding on the classroom time when she is an educator and the kids are not adversely affected by her "evening and summer career" then why be a stick in the mud. I would love to read an old fashioned run on sentence once in awhile from my guys. Jk or do I mean just kidding? GET A LIFE PEOPLE!!!!

A lot of people are very narrow minded. I know a young school teacher who is writing a historical romance novel -- or rather a fictionalized account of something that really happened in her home town and involving her own ancestors -- before the Civil War that has the potential to be a blockbuster. Another "Roots" only better. But she's afraid to publish it because of the potential backlash.
