Hi Readers, If there is one book I would ask you to read this month it would be BENEATH IT ALL by Tori Madison. I loved this book. I learned from this book. I am a better woman for reading this book. Because I was amazed by this book I reached out to Tori Madison and asked her to be a guest on my blog today. Please welcome the fabulous Tori Madison to the blog!

RRG: I loved the courage and strength Victoria has in Beneath it All. Did you find you had the same strength and courage during your experience with breast cancer?
TM: I wasn’t as strong as Victoria, or at least I didn’t feel that way. I tried to put on a brave face because I had two small children watching me go through it all. We explained that I had an “owwie” and that I would have to take “silly” medicine that would make me sick and lose my hair. They had no clue what was happening, but now they understand.
Hindsight, I could have been stronger, but I always have high expectations for myself.
RRG: Do you have an amazing group of friends like Victoria has?
TM:I have a pretty awesome group of friends and the characters in the book definitely share a mixture of their personalities and traits. They all joke with me that we need to plan a spa day (which will happen) and a cabana boy night (pretty sure our spouses would have issues this this). A few of them stood by my side during my battle with breast cancer, while others I met after the fact. Regardless of when they came into my life, they are an important part of it now.
RRG: As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
TM: I wanted to be an interior designer. No joke. I actually went to school for it, but got bored and transferred out. I never had any big dreams other than to be a princess, of course.
RRG:What song can you not get out of your head?
TM: Running Around In My Dreams by Tyrone Wells. I just wrote an amazing part of book two listening to it on repeat.
RRG: What was the last movie you saw?
TM: The Green Mile and I was bawling like a baby. I always do. I’m a very emotional person and when something grips my heart it takes over.
RRG: What do you like to read?
TM: I’m open to pretty much anything, but the whole paranormal, zombie, dystopian thing is not for me. I don’t shock easily when it comes to books, but shy away from books with domestic and extreme violence toward women.

Loved the interview! I wish I could say I’d be brave in face of something like this, but I guess we never know how’ll we react until it happens.
Thank you for stopping by. I don’t know how I would brave this situation, either. I would like to think I would be very strong willed but I know I would have a total freak out on the world moment(s). Make sure you enter to win an eCopy of the book.
Cancer is something that touches almost every single person in the world. At some point you either experienced it, or know someone who did. I truly believe attitude makes a huge differences in mental health and physical health as well. I am looking forward to reading this and drawing strength from other incredible people!
Jessica, Thank you for stopping by and sharing your insight. I hope you read this book and enjoy it. Bobbi Jo reminds me of you! Now you want to read it!! 😀
