Charlie Daye welcomes John Quinlan

Hello lovely readers and dwellers of my world! I have a special treat for you today. Help me welcome the uber sexy John Quinlan to our world. Thanks for stopping by John. I hope you enjoy your stay. So let’s jump right in shall we? I understand you’re a body builder. How did you get started in that?
I did junior bodybuilding back in my early 20’s as many of my friends were involved in it. It was fun and it was the start of taking my training regimen to a higher level.

Have you won any titles recently?
Most recently I competed at the 2013 NPC Vermont Bodybuilding Championships and placed 1st in the Open and Master’s Men’s Physique Divisions and went on to win the Men’s Physique Overall Championship in this show. I am a Men’s Physique competitor not a bodybuilder. We are a bit more along the fitness line with models and boxers etc.

Congratulations on your recent win! So, what does it take to get into the shape your in?
Depends on what my goals are at the time. If I have a model shoot or show coming up I usually train like a boxer 3x per week with weights and cardio and 2x with just heavier weights without cardio work.

Wow, that’s a lot of work. Do you have a strict diet to match your work out routine?
The same applies to my above training. If a model shoot or show is coming up I cut out all alcohol and sweets etc. I only drink water and consume quality protein and carbohydrates. I do eat my share of spinach while I am training since it worked so well for Popeye it can only help me as well, ha ha ha!

Well , sweetheart, I can tell you as a close personal friend of Popeye’s, you’re doing great! When not training, what is your most favorite thing to eat?
I am a sucker for Greek pizza. I can eat boat loads of this stuff. Love it!
Ah, another pizza lover. I knew there was a reason you and I got along so well. Although admittedly my favorite pizza is Margarita pizza.

What made you decide to become a cover model? It seems quite a leap from competition to romance cover modeling.
It was not my choice, many people for the longest time kept telling me I should get into it because I had a great look for it. I kept ignoring them and saying I will never do romance stuff but finally one day I spoke with a few writers and they were very nice with all kinds of compliments for me so I decided what the hell and the rest as they say is history.  

So was this an accident or was it a chosen path?
A complete accident. I have been modeling for over 2 decades which started out with fitness related stuff and then over the course of time other genres. Romance cover modeling has been the most recent of course and it has been wonderful to me. To me all modeling is the same just little variations here and there. I feel very comfortable as a romance cover model. I am referred to as the most tattooed male romance cover model in the world and I am honored to hold that title.  

Ah, yes. The tattoos are lovely. I’m sure after today the ladies of my world have come to a new appreciation for your tattoos. *wink* So, how many book covers have you been on?
 Been on several but I have about a dozen more in the works as we speak. I am really looking forward to seeing my ‘Angel of Satan’ image that is going on the cover of author Kharisma Rhayne for her Dark Retribution: Warriors of Malice series this year J 

Have you ever read any of the books whose cover you grace?
Never, for some reason I have always felt it is bad luck. I like to deliver a good quality cover image and once I do that my job is done.

I’m sure you’ve met quite a few authors in your time. Of all the authors you’ve met, who left the most lasting impression on you?
 Man, there have been so many! It is really hard to mention just one author in particular. I would have to say Taabia Dupree. She is an amazing writer and has used me as her cover model for her book, ‘Jessica’s Obsession’. She also surprised me and created a John Quinlan fan page. That was special. Such a sweet lady!

The fan page will no doubt add some fans to your current followers. Have you ever met any adoring fans who left lasting impressions?
 It has been amazing; I have been in touch with thousands of fans either in person or through mail who show me such incredible love & support. Such kind words from people all over the globe who support my unique look and encourage me to keep going strong. I personally thank each and every one of you. 

What are some of your guilty pleasures? I’m sure you have one or two. We all do.
My favorite TV show back in the day was ‘Playboy Night Calls’ with Juli Ashton and Doria Rone. I thought Doria Rone was the hottest woman on Earth back then and still do.

Speaking of Playboy… Is it true you were nominated for hunk of the month by Playgirl Magazine? How’d that go?
Yes I have been nominated for June 2013 Playgirl Hunk of the Month. Voting is going on this month and runs through May 31st. It would be sweet to win for sure as I represent the entire world of romance and all of my cover model brothers. Hopefully we will be having a victory celebration on June 1st.  

Ooh! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for you! Now, since you’ve become every woman’s wet dream it’s only fair that you share one of your fantasies with us. What is one fantasy that you’d be willing to share?

One sweet fantasy is having a model shoot with a female photographer that deep inside I would love to get with and then BOOM right as the shoot ends she says….”you want to go shower with me?” And the rest your imagination will take care of J  
Oh, sweetheart, my imagination is more than capable… wow… is it getting hot in here?? *fanning face* Let’s heat things up or cool them off with the next question…. John, are you attached?
Married to wife Jennifer
The good ones usually are. Sorry ladies!!

Now, I  have a few random “get to know you” questions…
First of all, what is your natural hair color?
This is a funny one seeing I shave it but black is my natural color baby J
Black? Really? Didn’t see that one coming but then again with absolutely no hair on your body it would be anyone’s guess. 

If you were trapped on a deserted island what are three things you’d bring with you?
Plenty of alcohol, sun block and munchies. Could make a vacation out of it until the damn food and booze ran out then I would be screwed, LOL!!!!!!!
I’ll join that party anytime! LOL.

Who is your celebrity crush?
 Megan Fox

Do you have a favorite author?
There are so many great authors out there I really don’t think I can say off the top of my head but one thing is for sure with John Quinlan, author Charlie Daye is one of the most talented and beautiful ones in the world today J 
Such a charmer! Honey, feel free to stop by and flatter me anytime! LOL

Favorite book?
‘Jessica’s Obsession’, I am the cover model J
That makes sense.

Favorite movie?
Wedding Crashers, absolutely hilarious…..Remember the character of Todd when he said this to Vince Vaughn,”I made you a painting, I call it Celebration…’s sexual and violent.” Ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sadly, our interview has come to an end but I do have one final parting question for you… What does the future hold for you?
I have no idea as I live for the moment. Great things happen to good people when they least expect it so we will see what is in store for John Quinlan.

Well, ladies, the interview maybe over but I did manage to sneak a peek at sites John frequents. So, if you’d like to stalk him by all means go ahead and if catches you just tell him Charlie made you do it! But the party's not over yet ladies. Continue down for hot and steamy picks!!!/JohnJQuinlan
