Vincent Charles Ceglia was born in Rahway, New Jersey in 1969. Vincent has two brothers, a stepbrother, and a stepsister scattered around New Jersey. He grew up in the town of Fords, NJ in Woodbridge Township. Vincent was a participant in the district's Gifted and Talented program from third grade until he completed his high school years at Woodbridge Senior High School. Vincent continued his educational pursuits at Richard Stockton College earning a Bachelors Degree in Literature. Vincent's initial concentration was poetry, but quickly discovered that his descriptive writing style was better suited for fiction. Vincent's love of writing and the outdoors began at a very early age. His parents took him on regular fishing trips and by age nine, Vincent joined his father, grandfather, and uncles in the field. Hunting and fishing were a way of life in his family and he loved both activities. It wasn't until his last year in college that Vincent found his authorial voice, as the son a union father, with a particular contemplative nature. After college, Vincent began working in the health insurance industry. He held positions in Customer Service, Fraud Investigations, and currently holds the position of Senior Compliance Coordinator. Vincent began working on his collection, Somewhere Between Hope and Harmony when he graduated college in 1995. However, only with the birth of his first child came the insight needed to finish the collection. Vincent has always been active in the hunting and fishing communities and plans to continue those efforts, so that his son and daughter can enjoy the rich family tradition in the outdoors that he did growing up.
