My Grandfather Bill Hafner - One of The Greatest People I Have Ever Known

Today I just wanted to make a quick post about my grandfather, Bill Hafner. He is almost 92 years old and just recently was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He is a veteran who served in the Navy and is one of the greatest human beings I have ever known. As a young boy he taught me about character, how to be polite to others and to treat people the way I wanted to be treated. He always said kind things to me and gave me self-confidence from a very young age. You were always there for me as a boy and gave me so many great memories; I will do the best I can to be there for you now. I was truly blessed to have such an amazing grandfather and role model in my life! 

God Bless

Special Thanks To Writer Kathleen Valentine by John Quinlan

I would like to take a moment to show my appreciation for a truly amazing and super talented writer who mentioned me the other day. Kathleen Valentine, I personally thank you so much! I am honored by your words about me, very nice! I am truly humbled. It was posted on the Parlez-Moi Blog and the title is "Yakusa & The House of Skin" which is about Kathleen's view on tattoos in romance novels and her personal views. Here is what Kathleen said about me:

So what is is about tattoos. Well, of course, much of it has to do with the body under the tattoo. If that body is particularly beautiful the tattoo just serves to enhance the beauty. The hunk below is John Quinlan from Boston who I cyber-met through a forum for writers. He is breaking into the romance novel cover model field and, in my opinion, has far more appeal than a lot of the romance cover models I've seen.
What I also thought was amazing is the fact that Kathleen lives very close to me which is a first time that a writer is located about 20 minutes away from me! Maybe someday I can sit down with Kathleen for an interview, I would be honored as she has some very impressive credits in her resume. If you would like to learn more about this incredible talent please go to Kathleen's web site and blog links which I have listed below. A truly amazing writer, person and friend of mine. 
God Bless

Thank You Julie Cooper Barber by John Quinlan

Over the years I have been used as a model for many different genres; fitness, fashion, art and sports. I have to be honest, of all the types I have been involved with one of my all-time favorite themes has been a boxer/MMA fighting. Over the years doing many shoots and projects I have worn a very special pair of gloves. These were MMA style gloves, Muay Thai style gloves to be exact by Kombat Gear. Recently, I signed and donated these gloves along with a pair of trunks to David S. Brown enterprises in care of Julie Cooper Barber. Julie is an amazing writer and one of the most intelligent and goal oriented people I have I have ever had the privilege of speaking with. Julie told me the apparel would ultimately be auctioned off for charity along with many other similar items. I have to be honest, I did have a bit of a personal attachment to these gloves but it is a nice feeling I have knowing they will be helping raise money for those in need and I did my part to help them. Let me just mention how much respect I have for every boxer and mixed martial arts fighter in the world today (and from the past). You are all true warriors and gifted athletes with determination and perseverance that is up there with the best in the world. Truly inspiring to me! God Bless
