Weekend Writing Warriors!

It's Sunday and I'm participating in the Weekend Writing Warriors mini hop again. The deal is to post 8 sentences from a writing project, published or unpublished. This week I'm offering a bit from my Victorian polyamorous romance, Loving Leonardo. 

my 8, then details follow:

Refilling our glasses, she raised hers in a toast. “Gentlemen, if I may quote our good friend Leonardo, ‘The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.’ To redefinition!”

Raising our glasses with hers, Luca and I joyfully repeated at once, “To redefinition!”

To feed his own curiosity, Luca studied da Vinci’s world and his place in history. Ellie was drawn to the philosophy of the man long considered the personification of the Renaissance. I studied the mind behind man’s unique artworks — an interest formed from my personal affinity. What a trio we were.


Behind the scenes: Here, Nicolas, Ellie, and Luca are discussing Leonardo da Vinci and in thie course of conversation come to find their disparate interests converge compatibly. And more than that, opposites attract.

Here's the story
Loving Leonardo (book1)
A Victorian polyamorous love story, with a touch of reader-interactive art history.
