Billy Ray Halstad was just another hard-working miner with a taste for some harmless hell-raising. Then one fateful Saturday night he found himself face-to-face with a preacher feller that told him sinning isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. To Billy Ray’s surprise, the message took. Now he’s actually got money in his pocket come Sunday morning. He’s got something else, too: an urge to spread the good news.

About the Author:
Frank wrote his first story—it was a western—when he was five. It was really awful, as might be expected, but his mother kept that typed and spell-checked short story tucked away until the day she died.
Later, Frank became a newspaper reporter, thinking that books are written by authors which he most assuredly was not. He kept trying to write though, and eventually did it wrong enough to learn how to get it right. That first sale, a young adult novel published by Independence Press, was more than thirty years and a good many books ago.
As a journalist, the Colorado Press Association awarded Frank their highest award, the Sweepstakes Award, for the best news story of 1980, and the Western Writers of America has twice named Frank recipient of their prestigious Spur Award. Frank passed away at age 73 in December 2015.
