    Greetings from Texas.

    Hello! I write under the name Theo K. Sly. I have recently entered writing after retiring from another profession. I have lived in Oklahoma and Pennsylvania, as well as in Texas. While in the military I was stationed in Pusan, South Korea for 17 months. Since I began my writing, I have published a novella trilogy entitled Destination Reality. Here are links to my published work.

    Destination Reality, Book 1, The Deadly Events.

    Hello and welcome. I'm new too so I can't give any advice about AW, but from what I can see there is a lot of knowledge and brain picking that can be done around here. :-)
