About the Author
Born into a Mennonite family, Carrie spent her childhood in a small farming community in southern Manitoba. With only a few remaining inhabitants, Horndean was once a thriving little community. At one time Main Street boasted two grocery/general stores, two auto mechanic garages, grandfather’s feed mill, grain elevator, egg grading station, post office, church and school. Grandpa’s barn and homestead still stands, now owned and cared for by strangers. At the age of fifteen, Carrie’s family moved to Steinbach, Manitoba. After she married, she and her husband moved to British Columbia, where they still make their home in charming Abbotsford. Carrie’s interest in the arts began as a young girl. An imaginative child, she loved to draw, read, write and listen to stories. Their school library consisted of a mere three short shelves of books, not nearly enough to satisfy her need for creative reading and story-telling. After school Carrie would often run home to sit down beside their old fashioned, console radio and listen to Aunt Ollie - a half hour program where Aunt Ollie read fables, mysteries and other delightful tales. Carrie’s passion for storytelling and desire to create continued after marriage and children. She took several writing courses as well as pursuing painting, drawing and film making. She writes for both adults and children, fantasy and adventure being her favorite. The story of Walt was a story she had on her heart to write since his death in 2008. It is her hope and belief that this redemptive story will be an encouragement and give hope to the reader. Carrie is an ordained minister with a M.Min (Professional Writer) and D.Min (Fine Arts & Media) Other books by the author: The Ryder, 1991, A Children’s Fantasy Adventure. Newfies to the Rescue, 2000, Tales of the Newfoundland Dog. Treasure Trap, a sequel to The Ryder, is in process.

the story of Walther Colt and his very good friend Cali. God tends to put us in certain places at certain times. The Colt family and the Ginter Family interact thru many years of each other's lives. What Walt tells Cali that he would like most in his life is to live on a farm. Although this is his Life's dream he follows a much different path. With the decisions that he makes he often find himself in and out of prison or the hospital for mental health. His life story is one of an emotional roller-coaster with many ups and downs. He has few friends, but certainly one who is committed to him throughout his life. Cali comes to see him often in prison and acts as a character witness for him in the courtroom.
I want to thank the author for giving me the courage to write a story about my friend who went through a similar lifestyle.
Matthew 25:40 "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
James 5:20 “remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins.”
Your story is well written and I am glad that I had an opportunity to read it.
