Samuel Reed

Coastal Carolina University Alumni Samuel W. Reed has just released his debut novel “The Fabulist” on Amazon Kindle, with print and audio versions forthcoming. 

“The Fabulist” is about Frank Shaw, a failed novelist and part-time sports blogger that takes a job covering the Maui Classic Invitational, a pre-season collegiate basketball tournament in Hawaii over Thanksgiving. But after meeting a cute bartender he wants to impress at the resort, he dismisses his assignment and sets out on a path toward self-discovery, mind-bending adventure, and quite possibly love.  

Sam studied Fine Arts during his tenure at Coastal Carolina. His family are faithful Chanticleers with his sister, Kristen Reed Gallimore, also having attending Coastal.

After moving out to Los Angeles in 2007, Sam was instrumental in the 10 year production of the seminal disability rights documentary “CinemAbility” starring Jamie Foxx, Geena Davis, Ben Affleck, Marlee Matlin, Gary Sinise and dozens of other film and TV professionals, while also lending his talents to the SXSW Audience Award winning documentary “Take Me To The River,” narrated by Terrance Howard.

 “The Fabulist” marks Sam's first effort in the world of publishing, as he continues to expand his creative talents as a producer, writer, and most recently, director.  

The Fabulist is currently available on Amazon Kindle here:
