The Most Tattooed Male Romance Cover Model in the World. Q&A with John Quinlan.

Happy Holidays everyone! Today I've got a super special treat for you. Make welcome cover model John Quinlan. Best known as ‘The Most Tattooed Male Romance Cover Model in the World,’ John joins me for a one-of-a-kind festive interview. So as always, feet up, relax and read on!

SKY:  Glad to have you over, John! Tell us, what made you decide to become a romance cover model?

JOHN:  Many people told me I had the look for it.

SKY:  Everyone should stay healthy and work-out. Why?

JOHN:  To try and live as long as they can to see their children grow up and be active in their lives without any issues. Yes, I am speaking as a proud parent here Sky. :)

SKY:  Time to pose for the cameras (book cover time), what outfit are you most uncomfortable in?

JOHN:  I am fine with all outfits although if I had to choose one that I might like a bit more than the rest I would have to say the classic leather jacket. Guess I feel comfortable as a bad guy.

SKY:  You’re the most tattooed cover model. Tell us more about that. Did someone or something inspire each tattoo?

JOHN:  I am honored to be the most tattooed male romance cover model in the world. Each tattoo that I have has personal meaning to it of course. Some I hold secret although my nautical stars symbolize reaching for my dreams and the oriental inscription inside my left wrist is the ‘family’ symbol which represents my 3 children.

SKY:  Oh, love it! So sweet. Getting into the spirit of the season, you could choose one color to decorate your house at Christmas. What would it be?

JOHN:  Red

SKY:  Holiday time. Throw some rum in my drink. Yes or no?

JOHN:  Yes, lots! That’s why we make the most of the holidays; they only come around so often.

SKY:  Are you passive or aggressive?

JOHN:  Depends on what it is. My career, aggressive. Fans, passive & respectful.

SKY:  What is your favorite holiday scent?

JOHN:  Sugar Cookie

SKY:  You’ve lived, loved, then some. Advice?

JOHN:  Take everything day by day as you never know what’s going to happen when you least expect it.

SKY:  You’re an old man looking back on your life. Did you do the right thing at the right time? Share.

JOHN:  I could write a book on this question alone but I think to answer this question Sky to the best of my ability I can sum it up in one simple sentence. “I did the best I could with what God gave me.”

SKY:  Deep down inside your love life is ultimately a sweet tale or an erotica? *grins*

JOHN:  erotica

SKY:  Time to hit the grocery store; need to grab a few essentials. You’re alone. What are you wearing?

JOHN:  T-shirt and jeans, LOL! You said grocery store Sky. If you said the bedroom or another place similar I would be wearing something different, maybe nothing at all who knows. :)

SKY:  You’re trapped on a desert island. Do you want a beautiful woman by your side or an old man who knows how to fish?

JOHN:  Beautiful woman hands down. I have lived on twigs and berries so I will get by on food but no woman on a desert island that is just cruel!

SKY:  One Christmas song truly means the holidays have arrived. What is it?

JOHN:  Jingle Bells, it is the all-time classic!

SKY:  The bloody faucet’s broken again. Are you the guy who crawls under to fix it or calls the plumber?

JOHN:  Calls a friend of mine who can do plumbing so I save money and because I can’t fix anything in the house. I am good at other things which make up for it *wink*

SKY:  You have one big regret, what is it?

JOHN:  Not doing this interview sooner, you are a great author Sky and it is my pleasure to be here with you today.

SKY:  Awe, thanks, John! You need to reach someone right away. Email, text, call or social network?

JOHN:  Call of course

SKY:  Time for bed. What are you wearing? *winks*

JOHN:  Nothing

SKY:  Boots on. Are you mountain climbing or trudging through snow?

JOHN:  Mountain climbing, love nature.

SKY:  You just played the lottery. Won 4.3 million. Then it was all taken away. How would you handle that?

JOHN:  I would see it as “the glass is half full rather than half empty, I never had it to begin with so I would just keep living my life like I had been.”

SKY:  Loved the interview, John! Thanks again for joining me today. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season.
