D. A. Metrov

Author D. A. Metrovabout this book: MACHINE OF GOD is the lost story of a remarkable Leonardo da Vinci invention that he personally designed, built, and navigated at the behest of King Louis XI of France. The vessel traversed land, sea, and air from Naples to Paris. Leonardo's notebook sketches for his "Macchina Fantastica," were destroyed along with many of his other precious works. This historical fantasy is based on the recently found diary of a crew member which contains a detailed description of the entire affair—from its humble beginnings to its catastrophic end.

I'm an artist, writer, and filmmaker. Since Leonardo has been my primary role model since childhood, writing this story came naturally. This great artist and his creations will inspire us for as long as mankind inhabits the earth. I probably wrote MACHINE OF GOD in about six months, but it is based on a life-long study of the famed Renaissance master. When, as a child, I showed an ability to draw, my mother gave me a book of Leonardo's drawings to copy from. He was my first teacher. The novel is rich in historical facts, which, thanks to the internet, are fairly easy to come by. I've been told it's geared for young adult readers, although I have five star reviews on Amazon from people of all ages. If you read the book and enjoy it, I would be enormously grateful if you left your review on Amazon. Thank you so much. Warmest regards, D. A. Metrov
