If taking a college fencing class, eating from the trash can, and smelling like an animal were qualifications for becoming a sword-swinging barbarian, J. D. Brink might be Conan’s protégé. But since that career path seemed less than promising, he has instead been a sailor, spy, nurse, and officer in the U.S. Navy, as well as a gravedigger, insurance adjuster, and school teacher in civilian life. Today (New Years, 2014) he and his family live in south Texas, where the heat makes smelling like an animal a natural part of life. In his writing, as in life, Mr. Brink enjoys dabbling in multiple genres.
#1 - grumpy (looks like he has a black eye) viking
Now the big decision: Which picture to pair up with this?
#2 - goofy (perhaps smelling something funky) viking
These are the shots I'm considering. Anyone have any preferences? Feedback? Harsh criticisms? Jokes and jabs in bad taste???
#3 - contemplative (not paying attention) viking
Or just the head shot as he thinks intelligently about marking his territory?
Please, speak up! Leave a comment, send me a message, post to Facebook, whatever you prefer. Help me pick a viking pic!
