Tupper’s debut novel, “Balancing Act,” relates her life experiences through a humorous, witty account of the daily life and struggles of an overwhelmed career woman and mother.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
With the rising number of single-parent households and shrinking budgets, many working men and women can relate to the precarious balancing act of home and work.
Author Diane Tupper knows exactly how difficult it can be to keep a career and family in check. Returning to school as a single mother of five in her early 40s, Tupper completed her undergraduate degree, fueling her aspirations of becoming a lawyer soon after. She finished law school at the University of British Columbia the same year her youngest child graduated from high school. Wasting no time, Tupper then began her new career, practicing family law for the next 20 years.
“When I was trying to decide whether or not to return to school, I said to one of my children, ‘I don’t know, I’ll be 45 when I graduate,’” Tupper explains. “His response was, ‘You will be 45 whether or not you return to school.’ This helped me make the decision.”
Tupper’s debut novel, “Balancing Act” (published by iUniverse), relates her life experiences through a humorous, witty account of the daily life and struggles of an overwhelmed career woman and mother.
