So… “What’s this book all about?” you ask.

Convicted of trying to kill the police chief at age 15, Walter faces years in adult prison. His only friend, a young Mennonite girl from a strict religious background.

Yes, that would be me. We met when we were teens, and our friendship lasted his lifetime.

Walt’s wife, Peggy and I reminiscing. Here’s what she has to say about it.

“Eeeek!! The book is here! It’s called Roadblocks to Hell and it’s a fictionalized story of my husband’s life. This is me with author and friend.
 
 This book is well written and very accurate. The fictionalization involves names, some dialogue and dramatization. The core facts of story are true. I highly recommend this book, it has brought back a lot of memories.”

Walt experienced life in a way few can imagine… and yet… as prison chaplain Madsel put it, “I am so proud of Walt… over the past 14 years I have worked with so many like him, and only 2% of the people with histories like Walt ever make it at the end. Most die violently or alone in prison in their lost state.”

Walt’s story is intriguing and compelling,  but most of all it is redemptive.

I am honored to be the one to tell his story, and I am honored to have had him as a friend for over 40 years.

I believe this book will give hope and encouragement to many.
