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.  

His written work has appeared online on Pseudopod.org and Ascent Aspirations, and in Tales of the Talisman and Cemetery Moon magazines. In 2012, his SF novelette "The Thorne Legacy" was a quarter finalist in the Writer’s of the Future Contest. His superhero story "Medicine Man" was an Honorable Mention in the same contest in 2014.

In his writing, as in life, Mr. Brink enjoys dabbling in multiple genres.
