March 14: Viktoriia Peterson

Born and raised in Ukraine, Viktoriia has resided in Sundance, WY with her husband since May 2014. She received American Citizenship in January 2019. Viktoriia loves the abundant beauty and wildlife in Wyoming. Her favorite pastimes are gardening, hiking, camping, and exploring her creativity while surrounded by nature. In addition to her passion for writing and painting, she practices reflexology and massage therapy.

She has published several children’s books during her five years living in the United States: Lisa and the Bears, A Devils Tower Secret, and Eagle Feather. Additionally, she is also the illustrator for her books, working in oils and acrylics. The subjects for these books are National Parks, children, and animals. She wants her books to show kindness, mutual understanding, friendliness, and respect for the opinions of other people.
