Leonardo The Last Years
November, 1516. Disgraced by the Vatican, Leonardo da Vinci is en route to France to assume his duty as the new court painter of the young King Francois I. Social prejudices and inequalities of the time revive Leonardo’s past. Will he survive, unharmed, the volatile, but exuberant court life of 16th century France?

“LEONARDO THE LAST YEARS” is a work of fiction. It is a rich story where documented historical facts are woven so tightly with fiction that it appears seamless.  It shows Leonardo da Vinci, not only as a brilliant mind whose ideas stretched far beyond his time, but also as a gentle man who did so while fighting the demons of his past that threatened to destroy him. Starting in 1516, and spanning three years of Leonardo’s life, it brilliantly invokes the sights, customs, and people who lived during the period.

About Me

Author Portrait
I am a writer, designer of all things and artist. My first book was Dream Your Life Positively. I wrote it mainly for myself as a guide to follow my affirmation and meditation exercises as I had learned in my youth. It turned out to be a great personal success. I also love history and I am an avid reader, so it is very natural that my latest book is time leap into the 16th century. LEONARDO THE LAST YEARS starts in 1516 and spans three and a half years of Leonardo da Vinci’s life. It is a work of fiction so tightly woven with documented historical facts that it appears seamless. It shows a Leonardo, not only as a brilliant mind, but also as a gentle man who did so while fighting the demons of his past that threatened to destroy him.
