La Dolce Vita!

Yes, I feel like it’s time to live the sweet life.  I’m very happy about the election results–feel we finally came together and picked hope over fear.  But I’m aware some people are still coming around to the idea, so for now, how about we celebrate La Dolce Vita!

I’m getting ready for a fun night out with the girls! 

Tonight, I’m attending La Dolce Vita Girls Night Out to help celebrate the launch of Dating da Vinci by local author, Malena Lott.  Maybe I’ll get some good pics to share!  Until then, here’s a bit about the book in Malena’s own words.  


Dating da Vinci

I wrote the story of Ramona Elise Griffen (Mona Lisa) because so many women can relate to a time in your life when you need a renaissance – an awakening. For Ramona, 36, a widowed mother of two, she’s been living life as a Griever for two years, since the unexpected death of her husband to a heart attack two years prior. She’s put her life on hold, but is ready, slowly, to find who she is now and what she should do next. As an English teacher to immigrants, she meets Leondardo da Vinci, a striking twenty-five year old Italian who shares a lot of characteristics with the real da Vinci. She gives him a place to stay in her husband’s garage studio, while he shows her so much more. The story is one of soul mates and second chances and finding joy after tragedy. I  hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?  I ran out and bought a copy when I read a review calling it a mix of How Stella Got Her Groove Back and Under the Tuscan Sun.  I own both movies and LOVE them. 😉


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.
