NEON, Ky. (WYMT) - One local author had his first book signing in Letcher County Saturday.
David Brown signed his suspenseful thrillers at the Neon library.
Brown grew up in Letcher County, and several friends came to get their copies of his books.
He says he often draws from his experiences of growing up in Eastern Kentucky, and remembers how much he loved to read as a child.
“I think growing up back here, it gives you an out, you know. You can sit and create this separate world, and we just didn't have a lot to do back here,” said Brown.
The signing was followed by a home cooked meal for those in attendance.
Brown has two more books expected to be released in the next few months.
