Meet the Author

Lance A Mannion was born in the hills of Kentucky to lower middle income parents in 1963. He has three brothers and one sister, and is the youngest of all five. He moved to Clearwater, Florida in 1974, after his father had a heart attack and was forced to retire from driving a bus.
Lance served in the Marines in his early twenties and settled back in Florida in 1987 after his honorable discharge. He married and raised his four children there. He built a successful business and ran it for 13 years. The business was consuming him, but he continued to build it until a tragedy in 2004 threw his life into a tailspin.
His eldest son took his own life at the age of 13, and it devastated his family. Lance found the strength to try to live on, but he realized just how precious life had become. So he decided to make changes. He later was divorced from his wife, sold the business that was killing him, took lessons and became a pilot, started a new business, and finally sought out the love of his life, Lisa, who he had secretly loved since high school. They were married in March of 2012.
Among pilots there is a saying; “There are things that can’t help you in the air, altitude above you, the runway behind you, and fuel in your tanks after you’re back in the hanger.” Lance believes there is another important lesson that people don’t seem to realize; “There is only one thing of value in the world. It’s not money, or power, or health, or family. The only thing of real value is TIME. You can’t buy it, steel it, bargain for it, or even beg for it. All you can do is either use it, or waste it.”
Lance hopes that you enjoy this book, which was loosely based on his own life, and that you will decide to live your own lives like each day might be the last. He hopes you will “Make it count.”

    Just finished reading this book. It was amazing, I couldn't put it down. The characters were like friends by the middle of the story. I can't wait for Mr. Mannions next book.

    Lance Manion is a great new author. Make It Count "The Treasure of Time" is a fantastic first book but the quality of a long seasoned author. I can’t wait for the next one. You’ll have to force yourself to put it down. It reads like a life experience and the enlightenment that can happen through the interaction with those experiences. Well recommended for readers of all ages. I dare you to read it and tell me different.

    A good book is one that you cannot set down once started. The author's words helped me feel as though I was actually in the story, and a reader couldn't ask for much more than that. An easy read from beginning to end, and of course, a crucial life lesson was portrayed amongst his words. Can't wait to see what else this author has to offer!

    Entertaining and Enlightening!

    I don't often write reviews of products, even when I enjoy them and fully intend to. I just finished this book and couldn't help myself. This a great adventure that takes you right along with it and more importantly, teaches us a great life lesson! It is easy to identify with the characters and makes for a fun and easy read that will have you thinking about how you live your life. I definitely recommend for anyone who enjoys the art of storytelling and wondering what more life has to offer!

    Incredible Book!

    Most people say not to judge a book by its cover, but everything about this book, including the cover, the title "Make It Count", and the detailed descriptions rank this book at the top of my list! Reading this book was truly incredible. Once I started, I could not stop until the end. Mannion uses very descriptive language making it easy to understand the characters and feel as though you are actually in the book watching their lives unfold. The book is very easy to read and flows smoothly from beginning to end. I cannot wait for the hardcover release to add to my collection! I definitely recommend this book to people of all ages.

    MAKES YOU REALIZE WHAT IS TRULY IMPORTANT......

    This was a very moving story. It makes you stop and think about what is truly important in life. The Author makes his characters very real and flawed. You could easily be reading about yourself or someone close to you. I dont want to give away the ending (which will have you in tears) but this story is very well written and flows quickly from one adventure to the next leading up to a very eye opening climax. I guarantee after reading this story you will definetly stop and smell the roses and look at life very differently and make it count...

    I decided to take a chance on this book because of the cover. I wasn't dissapointed. The adventures that Harry and his new girlfriend were exciting and captivating. I actually felt that I was with them on their treck around the world. I am not one to write reviews, but this book moved me. I found myself up so late last night reading it that I didn't think I was going to make it to work today. It's hard to believe this is a DEBUT novel. Way to go Lance! I'm definitely a new fan. I can't wait for your next one.
