Born in Poughkeepsie, New York, and now settled in San Jose, California, with his wife Jennifer and daughter Jasmine, Doug Vincent is a high-tech security professional, small business owner, and now a children’s book author! Doug and his family are active in the community and work hard to influence positive change. Writing these books is another way to accomplish that objective.

Why did I write the book? I wrote this book to help parents start the discussion about important qualities needed to be successful in life. Confidence in your thoughts, words, and appearance is essential, and I wanted to write something to help.


What are you currently working on? I am currently working on the second book, Happiness Is Key To A Stronger Me, which I hope will be ready by Fall 2022.

How long to get it published? I self-published Confidence Is Key To A Stronger Me, and it took one year. (October 2020 to October 2021.) I hoped it would have been faster but learned that there was more to the process than anticipated.
