When Colt steps into Sarah’s life, he finds that things with her aren’t exactly as they appear to be.

Interview with Stuart Reardon

Hi, Stu. First let me say, I am beyond thrilled that you agreed to be the face of my character, Colt Harris for the cover of Finding Home. As I’ve told you, I saw a picture of you a couple of years ago and the whole character of Colt sprang to life from that, which is something that I’ve never done before. I’ve always had the character in my head and then searched for someone who fit. I am beyond thrilled that the very man who inspired the character has agreed to represent him on my cover. So, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for that. Thank you. I’m very flattered I was always the character in your book. And thank you for choosing me for the cover, I really hope the book does great for you 🙂 x

I know that you are first and foremost a rugby player and athlete. What made you decide to go into modeling? I sort of just fell into modeling. I think being in sports and in good shape fits really well with modeling, and fitness modeling in particular. Being in professional sports already had me in great shape, so stepping into fitness modeling was an easy transition.

What’s the most unusual pose you’ve been asked to do? No really unusual poses to date that stick out in my mind. Some of the action shots are tough as it takes time to capture the right shot, so may have to do the same thing over and over again.

Another question I know everyone is always asking: is there any particular meaning behind your awesome tattoo? Do the symbols represent something, or was it just a design you said, Hey, that looks cool, I want that? I got my tattoo when I was recovering from a really tough Achilles tendon injury. I had a couple of operations to finally get it right, so it was during that time that I worked out the design with the tattooist and he did the magic. I have always been interested in Tribal designs and culture, so the tattoo reflects that, and it reminds me of that really tough 14 month period in my life: the really low points which made me strong and determined, and a high point when I finally got back fit to play super league again after 14 months of recovery and rehab.

I’ve heard tattoos are addictive. Will you get more or are you done? Yes, tattoos are very addictive, I think I may get some more in the future but I’ve not decided yet.

I know you come to the States for modeling jobs, where all have you been? Yes, I’ve been to a couple of places in the States, NYC, Miami and LA.

Where have you not gone but would like to? I would love to visit Vegas. America is a huge country so I’m sure there are loads of beautiful places to visit.

For me, because I’m a Native Texan, I have to ask: have you been to Texas? I have not but I would love to visit Texas 🙂

How does it feel to be a muse for a character in a book? I’m very flattered to be your muse for Finding Home. It’s a pleasure to be liked 🙂

When I was looking through pictures of you on the Internet, I came across one where you were holding a guitar. I grew up a Band Geek and love music of all kinds and try to incorporate it in my books when I can. That picture inspired a whole scene in the book, where Colt is stressed about something and picks up his guitar and is idly playing while talking to his girlfriend, Sarah. Do you play? Yes, I play the guitar, not really well, though, I’m still learning. I’m a beginner so it’s a working process.

Later in the scene, he sings to her. Do you sing? I try to sing but I’m not the best at that either. I need to practice more {Ann: I’m sure all the ladies are feeling what I am right now: *swoon*!!! Stu singing! *sigh* ;)}

OK, now let’s get personal. Are you ready for this? I’ll make it as painless as possible. Lightning round:
