Drifting cover

“Readers will come to love feisty Charlotte “Muddy” Rewis who, despite the bad news in the world, triumphs by making a difference in her own way. Chock full of humor, Drifting Too Far From the Shore is a beautiful story that makes you feel like you have been transported back to small town America.”

– Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump, among others


“The South been blessed with a writer like Niles Reddick. Drifting Too Far From the Shore marks extraordinary talent. I can’t remember the last time that I have enjoyed a book this much. It’s beautifully written and compelling, with incredible range. Muddy is richly developed, springing right out of the pages.”

– Michael Lee West, author of Crazy Ladies, among others
