9780373446476Interview with the hero from Calculated Risk by Heather Woodhaven:

1. Jeff Tucker, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I supervise accountants during the workweek, and take people skydiving on the weekends. My pilot would say it’s the fact I make delicious homemade jerky.

2. What do you do for fun? I’m the type of guy who has fun as long as I’m active. I’m not good at relaxing.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it? Going back to my hometown.

4. What are you afraid of most in life? I will fall in love only to lose her forever…whether by circumstances out of my control or by choice.

5. What do you want out of life? To succeed. Sounds simple but I can’t seem to get past the feeling that I’m not good enough.

6. What is the most important thing to you? My integrity.

7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book? Most people are shocked that I don’t own a television, so yes. About a year ago I noticed my favorite co-worker, Victoria, reading books during her lunch hour. I started checking out some of those authors myself. So far, I really enjoy Steven James.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My pride.  

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet? No, but my beautiful co-worker, Victoria, just rang my doorbell with a Newfoundland she calls Baloo by her side. It looks like the same dog that played Nana in Peter Pan. Victoria must have watched a lot of Disney movies growing up.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? The circumstance I know I could change would be when I was seventeen in a hardware store. I made a bad decision that despite making it right still causes me shame, especially around my uncle. I would really want to go back and ask my parents—especially my mom—why she gave me up when I was six years old, but I’m not sure it would guarantee me an answer or change anything.


  1. I would love to win. Thank you for the chance,

    Smiles & Blessings,

  3. Hi Heather & Margaret! Calculated Risk sounds very interesting and after reading about Heather I wouldn’t mind reading about her life. (I barely survived the first hill off the gondola on Aspen mountain so surviving a black diamond run there? I’d like to know how that was & congratulate her!!)

    • Whoops!

    • Kristen, it’s more funny than awe-inspiring to look back upon. I believe there were countless times where I was on my backside, sliding down. And when possible, I’d go almost straight across and only progress a foot or two down the slope. 🙂 That’s why I say I “survived.” Certainly not worthy of congratulations. Ha!

  4. Thanx for the giveaway!!!! Enjoying the interviews. j4hibdon(@) yahoo (.) com

  5. Heather,

    Your book sounds great! I met Steven James at a writer’s conference years ago when he only had a book or two out.

  6. Sounds like a great book – I would love to win a copy
