Lance Justin Peter Okones

Lance Justin Peter Okones is the author of a brand new science fiction/fantasy series, ‘The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley.’

TCBR: Tell us about the book and the inspiration behind creating this series?

Lance: The inspiration for the book comes from a feeling.  Remember when you were very young, that feeling you had when you went to spend the night with a friend.  It was Friday night and you had the whole weekend ahead of you.  That’s the inspiration for this series!
