In June of 2003, just six months after starting it the book was finished. Finished but anonymous, no one knew of the work nor his writing ability. Two years had passed before the book was introduced to a couple of family members and close friends. The feedback was very positive which gave Walter the confidence to share his work with people outside of his circle. Word in the underground began to spread about "Keeper" so he decided to have the book published.As an unsolicited author with no literary agent, it became close to impossible to gain interest from major publishers. A model of persistence, Walter refused to take no for an answer and gathered all of his available resources and worked towards publishing "My Brother's Keeper" independently.T.F. Walters is now living out one of his many dreams, as an author. This single father of one currently resides in New York City working on his next novel and forming his own multimedia company, W. Enterprises Inc.
