More animal than man, he bleeds caffeine and... Ah, I'm just kidding. It sounded cool though right?

I'm Jonathan, a former personal trainer turned full-time author and part-time model.

I could go on and on about how many books I've written and awards I've won but I'd rather use this time for you to get to know the real me.

I write because that's what I was born to do and I love doing it. Because of awesome people like you, I get to do it full time.

Connecting with fellow lovers of the written word is important to me so please join the Pack via my website at www.jonathan-yanez.com where you can grab an exclusive story or hang out with us at www.facebook.com/groups/1944447962437...

Hope you decide to stay in touch,

Jonathan

Hi Annalisse,

After I set up my account its been hard to remember to come back and add/review all the books I read. I try and read a book every one to two weeks so I'm always falling behind updating my "read list". :((less)

Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink
“The test is not a complex one: when the alarm goes off, do you get up out of bed, or do you lie there in comfort and fall back to sleep? If you have the discipline to get out of bed, you win—you pass the test. If you are mentally weak for that moment and you let that weakness keep you in bed, you fail. Though it seems small, that weakness translates to more significant decisions. But if you exercise discipline, that too translates to more substantial elements of your life.”
Jocko Willink

“Pain, sorrow, anger, these are all powerful emotions. Allowed to rule and left unchecked, they would destroy you. However, through training and willpower you can choose to harness those feelings and use them for something great.”
Jonathan Yanez, Alan Price and the Colossus of Rhodes

“Courage isn’t the absence of fear. It’s victory over fear.”
Jonathan Yanez, Alan Price and the Colossus of Rhodes

“History is full of men talking about peace. Peace is not attainable without soldiers willing to die. Everyone wants to talk about victory as if it's something easily attained without sacrifice. Well it’s times like these that you and I give our sweat and blood to make victory a reality.”
Jonathan Yanez, Alan Price and the Colossus of Rhodes

Rusty Nugent Hello,

Hopefully, we will become great buddies. I am an 42 year old southern gentleman author. I am working on my third novel. It's an paranormal, horror, adventure, magical, romantic, urban, dark fantasy book series, named Moonwarriors: In An Blackened Dawn. Take a look at my second novel Moonwarriors: Guardians of the Night. Come by and we'll chat, leave a comment.

Until Next Time . . .
