Point Roberts, WA, January 05, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- For a career woman, becoming an instant stepmom is sometimes the most challenging task she will take on. Her mind is often filled with uncertainties. What exactly is the role of step mother? Should I be a friend or a disciplinarian? How do I juggle the job, the new marriage, and time for myself and still feel balanced and in control? And will this ever be fun and fulfilling? Jacquelyn Fletcher tries to shed light to these questions in her book, A Career Girl's Guide to Becoming a Stepmom. Fletcher addresses every important issue about being a stepmom, combines a real live perspective, a positive attitude, and a practical approach that focuses on solutions, never defeat or negative compromise.
Blended-Families.com “Ask the Expert” series has invited Jacquelyn Fletcher for an interview on Thursday, January 15, 2009, 9 pm EST. Jacquelyn will present new concepts by comparing a job to the new family and why the basic professional skills of listening and learning are equally important in a family as in a company.
Jacquelyn Fletcher is a stepmother of three children and mother of one. She is a full-time freelance writer who sits on the Board of Directors of the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis-the largest independent literary center in the nation. Since the launch of A Career Girl’s Guide to Becoming a Stepmom, Jacquelyn has received feedback from stepmoms across the globe who found great comfort in her writing style: a tell-it-like-it-is honesty combined with the empowering energy of a cheerleader.
