Today, my very first guest to the naughty seat ~fans self~ is Justin Fellers. If you haven’t met Justin, let me tell you about him. Justin is a good friend that I met…actually trying to remember how we met, pretty sure there was alcohol involved. He and I have the most off the wall conversations in the history of people talking period. Oh wait, I remember how we met. It was at the release party for The Naughty Box 1. (I think) In case you didn't know, Justin is also my cover model for Payce's Passion.
This is another image of him from the same shoot.
Justin: You alright there, Piper?
Piper: Yessss, absolutely. I’ve never been better actually.
Justin: You ready to get busy?
Piper: Oh God! ~bites hand~ Get busy, ohhhh yeahhh!
Justin: With the questions, the one’s you had for me? Ready to get busy with the questions, Piper. ~laughs~ Should I interview myself?
Piper: There’s an idea. Everyone knows I pretty much suck at this, they wouldn’t mind if we just never got to those, I’m sure. Okay, fine! Questions! How did you get into it What made you decide to become a model and how long have you been doing it?
Justin: I always wanted to be an actor as a child and modeling was a great way to get into that. However, as I got older my dreams faded. 5 years ago my friend Rue Volley and I met at a party and she started photographing me for her works and it has been a dream come true ever since.
Piper: Alright, if you could model with anyone, who would it be?
Justin: Living or dead? I am a big fan of classic cinema. I would love to have been able to do a shoot with 2 of my personal heroes, James Dean or Charlie Chaplin.
Piper: What is the worst thing that’s ever happened on a shoot?
Justin: One shoot was outside in the summer wearing all black and leather. It was almost 100 degrees and super humid. We waited for 6 hours for one model to show up to do group shots. It was a horrible shoot. I was exhausted and dehydrated and so hot.
Piper: ~fans self~ Black leather, and hot. Oh yeah, that is definitely hot. ~coughs~ Sorry, the writer in me had a little scene come to mind, nothing to do with you. ~fist in mouth~ It happens like that with us author type people, it’s not like we can control it or anything. And anyway, what is your favorite image from all the shoots you have done?
Justin: I have 2. One is by Rue Volley, where I am staring directly into the sun and she captured the picture just at the right time and I look so malevolent. The second is from an amazing photographer named Codey Holliday that is black and white and just playing with shadows and is just a simple portrait. It was a very raw shoot and on the whole shoot is a favorite, but that picture really stands out.
Justin: I have done a nude shoot. I was nervous at first, but there was vodka in my water bottle. And, the photographer was very professional and we made sure to keep them very artistic.
Piper: Artistic, naked hottie photos plus vodka. God, stop it. ~growl~ Ever thought about moving to Texas? …Oh, sorry, refocusing. Let’s talk tattoos. How old were you when you got your first tattoo?
Justin: I got my first tattoo as a birthday gift to myself on my 21st birthday.
Piper: Are your tatts just tatts, or is there a meaning behind them?
Justin: There is personal meaning behind each of them..
Piper: Do you plan to get anymore inkwork?
Justin: Yes. I've already designed them and I’m just saving up to get them.
Piper: Do you have any piercings?
Justin: Yes I do. ~grins~!
Piper: Have you had an experience you would define as having a major impact on the direction of your life?
Justin: There have been several life altering experiences that I’ve had. Each one has made me into the man I am today. And even though some of them were difficult at the time I wouldn’t change them because I grew into a better person because of them.
Piper: I agree with that. I think we all have a bit of that, not understanding why something happened then, but it making a little sense now. It's the things that build us into who we are, I agree 100% What is your definition of emotional intimacy?
Justin: A way of being able to just “be” with someone, completely, with no restrictions and no shame. I would say it’s something that most people crave in a relationship (physically intimate or not) but few can actually acquire.
Piper: What is your favorite book/author? You can answer this question twice, watch it now.
Justin: HAHA!! Well, in all honesty, I don’t read much. I have a form of dyslexia so I don’t often read unless I have to.
Piper: Oh, well then get ready for the audio version of The Passion Series then. Yeah, I couldn’t resist the self-plug there, sorry. Describe yourself in 3 words.
Justin: Loyal, Honest, and Focused.
Piper: Great qualities, the best actually. You are definitely all of the above. That is what makes you such a good friend. How about weaknesses? I know, tell me just 3 weaknesses you have. ~please say tall redheads from Texas with that missing brain to mouth filter~
Justin: My three weaknesses are also the three words to describe myself. With good there is bad and unfortunately those things get me hurt sometimes.
Piper: What would you say is the most attractive quality in a person as a whole, something they have to have?
Justin: Honesty. That’s it for me. If someone is honest then everything else will fall into place.
Piper: Who is your hero, do you have more than one?
Justin: I have many people that I idolize different aspects of their lives and careers but mostly as people.
Piper: I do too, it’s hard to narrow it down to just one. What do you feel are the most important things in life?
Justin: Being able to live. Everyone is given life but few actually live it. I think if people can let go of their burdens and just LIVE and LOVE, then life is worth living.
Piper: Great answer. Okay now we have what I call the “Quick Round” I’ll give you 10 questions, just answer yes or no, or fill in with first answer that comes to mind. Nope no explaining it. Bwahahaha! Ready? GO!

Justin, I really appreciate you stopping by today as the first guest on the blog. As always, you are just an amazing and fun person to be around. I’ll make sure to get you that audio book when it comes out. Next is yours, I mean, Payce’s. I did not imagine you while I was writing that story, nope, I did not. Not even once. Wait, well, that one time there... no, that didn't count. That was purely to see if the character matched you, the cover you, not the real you. Well yes the real you too, naturally but...crap. Just kidding, I didn't, but I may or may not have know a few who did. Just saying, may. How did we make this about me anyway?
Oh, I know what I wanted to say to you or ask rather. Sorry, I'm a bit flustered. Okay, back when we did the release party for Payce’s Passion, you came to the event and we all had a blast. You completely rocked that one and some (okay, a lot) have asked if you’ll be at the release of the third book in the series, Passion’s Pride, too. So, here is your formal invitation on behalf of me and my friends and readers. Hope to see you, and thanks so much for this interview. You're really awesome.
Tune in on the 29th, for the next blog post. (that is, if anyone lets me know they want to be on it. Lol) Hope you enjoyed. For Justin's links and some more images, just have a look below. Don't forget to comment so we know you stopped by.
If you haven’t had a chance to look around Piper’s Naughty Playhouse, make sure to do that. You might read the welcome page first though, it’s like a maze inside.
