Convicted of trying to kill the police chief at 15, Walt faces years in adult prison.

Chapter 1 Walt age 14 300dpi 4

Born into poverty and heading down a dangerous and tragic road, how will this young man’s life end?

This is the compelling story of Walther Colt, facing life in prison – without parole.

Cali, a young Mennonite girl from a strict religious background remains his only friend.

Can she help? How will she help?

Follow Cali, and her family, as they spend decades investing in Walt’s life – in and out of prison.

ROADBLOCKS to HELL is based on a true story. Names have been changed but the stories are based on actual events.

Some elements have been fictionalized. The author follows the characters’ lives and activities as documented or remembered. Dialogue and thoughts are created to depict each individual character’s nature, their belief systems and their reactions to the events depicted in the story.

The prison interviews and the funeral service, for example, are mainly verbatim.

Some scenes are reconstructed from newspaper articles.

What is the purpose of this book?

Carrie writes

I wanted to offer hope to those who have loved ones traveling down a similar, self-destructive road.

I wanted to offer encouragement to those already on that road; that your life has a purpose, can change and can become meaningful.

I wanted to help the reader understand why a Mennonite girl from a strict religious background would connect and stay connected with this angry, rebellious man whose life was so antithetical to that of her own.
