LOS ANGELES, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- To help moms thrive in their increasingly demanding roles, two recognized experts in parenting and home- based employment have joined to produce an exciting book series entitled "Mom CEO."

Jodie Lynn, author and internationally syndicated parent/health columnist of Parent to Parent, and Lesley Spencer, author and founder of the national association of Home-Based Working Moms (, are co-authors in an exciting new book series.

New statistics show that record numbers of moms are returning to the home front. In fact, recent reports from the U.S. Census Bureau show over 5.4 million mothers put their careers on hold to stay home with children.

In combining their expertise and life experiences, Lynn and Spencer will focus on bringing valuable advice and information to these, and millions of other moms, for success in mothering, marriage, career, parenting and life balance.

"The book series will not only provide practical advice, but also will lift the spirits of moms and celebrate their many roles in life," Spencer said.

"All moms are CEOs. Whether it is Chief Everything, Chief Everywhere, or Chief Emotional Officer, moms are Constantly Evaluating Options for their families and for themselves," Lynn said.

The first book, "Mom CEO: Avoiding the Distressed Housewife Syndrome and Winning at Motherhood," is expected to be available this spring. Other working titles include: "Mom CEO: 101 Best Tips for New Mothers;" "Mom CEO: 101 Best Tips for Fun, Healthy, Fulfilling Marriages;" "Wow Your Spouse and Make Marriage Fun Again;" and "Mom CEO: So You Want to Work from Home. Your Top Questions Answered."

Woven through the series will be findings from thousands of inquiries received during the past decade by Lynn and Spencer along with findings from a survey sent of 40,000 women.

"The series is exciting and is the first of its kind to include literally thousands of voices from moms," said Lynn, whose work can be viewed at

Spencer, a 10-year veteran of a home-based business and mother of two active children, has experienced firsthand the importance of focus and life balance.

"I am excited about the shared vision. We both have survived tremendous challenges to get where we are today, and we have a desire to help moms," Spencer said. "With our combined background, I know we can truly provide inspiration to moms."

Both women are recognized leaders in their fields with high-traffic websites, books, columns, newsletters and an ever-growing audience of moms who look to them for motivation, advice and ideas.

"It's not a secret that within family challenges, life can become exasperating for moms. That's why many times, housewives have a level of despair that leaves them feeling stressed-out and overwhelmed," Lynn said.

Lynn originated the terms "Mom CEO," "Mommy CEO" and "CEO Mom" in 1989 and all implications in "honoring balance in the lives of moms/women," in print since 1996.
