Drift and Hum offers storytelling at its best, weaving through heights of laughter to lows of sorrow, with twist after twist.

Drift and Hum is a captivating debut novel about the kite ride of life and dealing with obstacles along the way. The story is told through the eyes of Sam, a 50-year-old South Carolina man who reflects from the present day back to his Canadian childhood to make sense of all of the challenges and universal entropy he has faced. His journey includes an extraordinary bond and friendship with three other boys as the four “Beaver Brothers” embark on adventure after adventure in their quest for peace of mind in the Canadian North and the American South. The characters will linger in your memory long after you finish the book, as will the powerful themes of father-son relationships and the coaching and mentoring we receive as we grow.

If you have been blessed with success and happiness in your life, this is your story. If you have dealt with personal tragedy, this is your story. If you treasure friendship, this is your story.

If you are a survivor, this is definitely your story.
