A Child's Antidote to War
Russian Invasion of Ukraine
by Derek Wolff

A gifted Ukrainian-Canadian child has one of the biggest challenges of her life ahead of her—one that could put her in the world spotlight. Vnucka, a child-genius, who was born in Canada to the daughter of Ukrainian-Canadian parents, has come up with a novel idea for peace. With the help of her grandfather, she concocts an unconventional peace plan, which becomes their mission to bring a resolution to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Author, Derek Wolff, moves this character and her mission through a world full of intrigue, wonder, surprise, deception, and disappointment—peppered with good and bad actors. From over-zealous HR head hunters to pestering paparazzi, not to mention, zany Hollywood actors and their performing replicate bots, she experiences a world no child her age could ever imagine. True to form, she never lets go of her prime objective, to bring peace to Ukraine. There’s no stopping this girl…

Upon graduating from the University of Victoria in Environmental Studies, in the late 70’s, Derek Wolff was hired with a group of environmentalists to open one of the first energy conservation centers, in Victoria BC. From there, he moved across the pond to Vancouver, where he joined two multi-disciplinary teams at Environment Canada, one involved in the research and drafting of a coastal resource atlas of BC, and the other assessing environmental impacts associated with the proposed Alaska Highway Gas pipeline. A few years later, he made a career change, to hone his writing skills as a free-lance reporter/correspondent for various Vancouver newspapers, magazines and national publications. After that, he rejoined the federal public service working in the areas of public education, media relations and communications. Towards the end of his career, he was awarded a fellowship with the federal government to write a research paper on the Asia-Pacific Gateway Initiative.
