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. :-)

We newbies need to stick together. Feel free to pick my brain anytime--what little there is of it. ;-)

Hey there, Theo! I'm a Southerner who spent a short time in South Korea as well (non-militarily, though). Good to meet a kindred spirit. Welcome!
