About Ron Lewis

Ron Lewis operates a movie theater in Central Oklahoma. He is a life long lover of both history and westerns. Mr. Lewis blends fact and fiction together. Mixing real characters and those created from whole cloth his stories are his views of the old west of the 19th century.

Mr. Lewis’s roots in Oklahoma reach back to the 19th century when is his great-grandfather John, moved though the Indian territories and eventually Oklahoma territory yearly. He operated a traveling musical group who sold a panacea concoction most often called “Snake Oil.”

Eventually his Grandfather John Henry settled in the Winding Stair Mountains of eastern Oklahoma, very near to Robbers Cave. John Henry worked for a mining company as an elevator operator. His grandfather was well known and all who knew him knew his credo in life. “I don’t want to be higher than picking corn or lower than digging potatoes.”

Hearing stories from his father, uncles and grandfather about life in the late 19th and early 20th centuries kindled a love for those bygone days. Many of these stories are the basis for his writing.
