24. I'm a romance author
MOST of those writing in this genre (roughly 98% women,) write under a pen name for the reasons Judy Buranich is currently dealing with. I am glad that those attacking Mrs. Buranich are being shown for exactly what they are - a bunch of ill-educated busybodies. Mrs. Buranich has been teaching for 25 years in that district. The former and current students responding to the article have all said they knew she was an author, but she has never mentioned her books (or the subject matter) in the classroom.

I do not write erotica. At the same time, I will defend those who do. It is their business what they do in their private lives, and what they choose to write about. They are not hurting anyone. Plus, considering the fact it takes a hell of a lot of talent to get published in the first place, they should be congratulated.
