Interview with Travis Maddox from Jamie McGuire’s National Bestselling novel, Beautiful Disaster
Okay so if you know me you’ll know that once I read Fifty Shades of Grey in February I was enthralled and decided to embrace my obsession with angsty contemporary romances, so while browsing through Amazon I stumbled upon this beautiful gem called Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. Once I read it, I shouted from the rooftops to everyone that would listen to read Beautiful Disaster! As a matter of fact both Cimmaron and I have each others phone numbers saved in our phones as Travis Maddox, so when we text each other the screen shows Travis Maddox…errrrr….of course now that I write it sounds a bit
crazy obsessive LOL! But hey two single girls need a little a fantasy ever so often, and that should be enough of a reason for you to be curious enough to check out our latest book boyfriend. I actually haven’t read a book that has made me wish I could grab a backpack, shave a few years off of my life and become a college co-Ed once again, in search of my very own Travis ‘Mad Dog’ Maddox!
Here at Miss Vain’s Paranormal Fantasy I love finding Indie-Authors and their books to platform on my blog in hopes of them gaining new fans. So imagine my surprise when one of my favorite reads of 2012 gains a publisher Atria Books a division of Simon & Schuster! Squuueee!!! Since Cimmaron and I both share a hit fiery passion for Travis as well as Beautiful Disaster we decided to interview him together out of respect to “Pigeon” aka Abby since neither one of us trusted ourselves to interview him alone. LOL. We had tons of questions we wanted to ask but Travis is a busy guy so we narrowed them down.
Below are a few of our
innaproriate questions that were cut while editing…..
Will you demonstrate your favorite kissing technique?
Will you hook up with me?
Do you like fake boobs?
Does my butt feel as firm as it looks?
Okay, so now you see why we needed to “group” interview him. Hehehe.

Thank you so much for taking the time to sit down and answer a few questions with my Homie Cimmaron at Talk Supe Blog, so we can share with our awesome readers. We’re so excited to have you here, we can barely contain our excitement! Well we have a pact with each other to be on our best behavior, and if you talk fast I think we might be successful! First I’d like to Congratulate you on the success of the story based on your life. Walking Disaster cannot be released soon enough!
1. Cimmaron: Travis, thanks so much for taking the time to speak with Miss Vain and I. We are super thrilled to have you on our respective blogs today. Thrilled might be an understatement. Miss Vain and I are practically holding on to every bit of sanity left in us and trying not to tackle you. Can you give our readers a little introduction about yourself?
My name is Travis Maddox, the resident bad ass. That’s me in a nutshell. Seriously, though, um … a little about me? I have three brothers. I go to Eastern U. I get pretty good grades, I guess. I like to ride around on my Harley so I can think. My best friend is my cousin, his girlfriend is the biggest pain in my ass, and I also happen to have a soft spot for her best friend, Abby.
2. Miss Vain: What made Abby so compelling that you not only gave her the nickname “Pigeon” prior to your introduction and make the most irresistible college co-Ed away from his player ways?
Abby was different, you know? A girl on campus not clamoring for my attention? Call me conceited or whatever, but it was refreshing. She doesn’t put up with my shit. She let me chase her, but didn’t try too hard to get away. When I saw her … I don’t know, I just knew. Oh, and she’s hot.
Miss Vain: You know, hearts are breaking right now……
3. Miss Vain: Suddenly you have discovered yourself on the cover of a national newspaper *gasp*, the headline would read “Travis Mad Dog Maddox…….” please fill in the blanks.
Was arrested last night for … just kidding. I hope.
4. Cimmaron: What’s your most treasured possession (aside from Abby, of course) and why?
My Harley Night Rod. I bought her with cash after winning my first big fight.
Miss Vain: Now every time I see a Harley driving down the road, looking for you and Abby.;) Will you give me a ride?
5. Miss Vain: Besides being an incredible fighter, lover, and straight A student, do you have a secret talent you’ve been hiding from us?
I sing a little.
Miss Vain: The scene where you sang in the cafeteria was incredible! Cimmaron and I both decided we wanted to not only go back to college, but we wanted to go to your school. I mean, singing at the lunch tables, as a singer myself if I went to your school I wouldn’t have ditched as often! lol
6. Cimmaron: What do you think about Jamie getting into your head to write Walking Disaster, the sequel to Beautiful Disaster?
The inside of my head is a little scary, if you want to know the truth. I have no outward filter, so you can imagine the things I hold back. Readers will be surprised to find out I’m a lot more contemplative than I seem, and I did have a strategy when I pursued Abby. At least, until I was too deep to think straight.
Miss Vain: I’m so anxious to get into your head, that I can barely contain my excitement. I’m very curious to see what was going through your head when you left with Monica the day Abby’s pipes broke, that scene has me very interested.
7. Miss Vain: If a famous Hollywood producer decided to make the story of your life Beautiful Disaster into a movie; which “A List” celebrities would you chose for the roles of?
Sean Connery for me. Okay, maybe an old me, but the dude is a bad ass. My second choice is Chuck Norris.
Abby would play herself, because no one is more beautiful or amazing than she is, and no one could compare. In my humble opinion, of course. Is she gonna see this? Because that would definitely score
For Shepley, Brad Pitt. Maybe Billy Bob Thorton. Either one plays a great smart ass.
For America … Joan Rivers.
Miss Vain: Although Sean Connery is older, he was freaking James Bond so I totally understand why you chose him. He’s badass just like you! I like Billy Bob Thornton for Shepley. Aweeeee that’s so cute about Abby, and we’re totally posting this so hopefully she’ll see it. Hehe. I think Joan Rivers portraying America is perfect….HAHAHAHA! But remember; without America, you would never have met your Pigeon!!!
Thank you so much for stoping by and allowing Cimmaron and I to get into your head a little! We wish you and Jamie McGuirre all the most success on yout next adventure Walking Disaster in 2013.
P.s. Since you only have eyes for Abby; Do you think you could hook me up with your brother Trent??……..
