Me: You are the inspiration for the male lead, John Doe #10 (John J) in my current WIP “She Who Watches (Evil Unleashed) where you help save the world from a released horde of demons straight from the legends of the Pacific Northwest. Have you been the inspiration for any other book characters?
John: Many, one of my favorites right now is the book “Flagentio's” by Taabia Dupree, which is the sequel to “Jessica's Obsession,” [for] which I was the cover model. My character, Anthony "Tony" Stone, is a real bad ass. Hahaha! She even used my real name in the book as I appear in it, as well. Very cool!
Me: You recently retired from active competitions, what are you going to do to fill that free time?
John: Personal training is a passion of mine. Helping people improve their spirit, mind and body through health & wellness is something I enjoy doing. I also have a big Boston based film project in the works along with being selected to play the role of US Army Captain Nixon in Jillian Bullock's movie 'A Sense of Purpose: Fighting For Our Lives' which is set begin filming in Philadelphia during November of 2016. I was truly honored to be selected as an actor to portray Captain Nixon in this film.
Me: Is there anything I didn’t ask about that you might want to tell the readers?
John: I am very happy to be sponsored by such a great author like yourself, Roxanna at the 2016 Las Vegas RT Convention in April. Thank you for selecting me as your 2016 RT Model Man.
Me: I’ve enjoyed going from acquaintances to friends with you over the last couple of years and I’m thrilled to be your sponsor. I look forward to meeting up with you at the 2016 RT Booklovers Convention in Las Vegas, NV to bring “She Who Watches (Evil Unleashed)” to all those readers and booklovers. You've been a great sport through all of this and it's been fascinating to see my character's personality develop with you as his inspiration, he swears he'll do you proud. Thank you for letting my readers have a glimpse into your exciting life. Keep doing what you do John; bringing the visual to our words.
