Danville, VA - At least a dozen local Southside authors were out at Danville's Piedmont Mall Saturday signing their books.
They were either born in the area or have relocated there, and most say they find the surroundings almost perfect for writing their thoughts down.
We spoke with two who have each written more than five books
"When I was a little boy my mother used to read me stories, Bible stories and she used to tell me stories, make up stories, and I really just got to where I just love a good story," said Larry Aaron, Author and Teacher.
"We gained notoriety with our first book here in 2001 and so when I found out someone besides my mother would read my books, I decided maybe I was on to something here," said Dr. Joey Faucette, Author and Motivator.
