Celebrate NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) with the Charles County Public Library this year by checking out some of our local authors, as part of our Local Author Virtual Showcase! All of the authors showcased in this series responded to a call for submissions we placed over this summer, to highlight their work throughout the month of November. At CCPL we value the contributions our local authors make in sharing their knowledge and passion with our community.  Make sure to check out our Local Author’s collection located at the Waldorf West Library.

Unbreakable: Readings that Inspire and Motivate


Unbreakable Readings that Inspire and Motivate is a book of inspirational readings that speak to the reader’s ability to persevere in spite of the obstacles he or she may encounter. It is a book about despair, resilience, and hope. It is largely focused on relationships and love— of self, others, and God. It provides encouragement and recommendations for moving forward in spite of the circumstances. To encourage contemplation, each writing is accompanied by a page where the reader can jot down personal reflections, questions, or thoughts.

Dr. Carolyn Vincent (better known as Dr.C.), president of Vincent Associates, LLC, is an author, trainer, guest speaker, certified executive & leadership coach, and an organizational development expert skilled at directing the development and implementation of human capital solutions. She is a thought leader and trusted advisor who is skilled in propelling executive and workforce commitment to achieve transformational and organizational goals.

Dr. Vincent came from humble and simple beginnings. Those humble beginnings provided the impetus for her to achieve success through furthering her education beyond high school, achieve a Bachelor of Science, MBA, and Ed.D. Education has been instrumental in shaping and enhancing her life.

Dr. Vincent faced and conquered many of the same challenges and insecurities facing many people today. She believes that her experiences and the lessons she learned—several of which are shared through her inspirational readings—had a profound impact on her life and can also encourage others.
