The year 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of world-renowned Italian painter Leonardo da Vinci’s death. His innovative ideas, extensive interests and creativity have always intrigued Andrew J. Scoma, Jr., M.D. If da Vinci was able, Scoma wonders what he might do to help people become the best they could be.

In “Leonardo’s Return” (published by AuthorHouse), Scoma tells the story of Leonardo, who has been in purgatory for 500 years and is due to stay for another 500. How can he use his genius to get out of purgatory? Readers are invited to find out as Leonardo makes a deal with God.

“This novel has an unusual plot that is based on history, theology and psychology. It offers, hope, humor and imagination. It will appeal to readers because most people appreciate insights into becoming their best selves,” Scoma says. For more details about the book, please visit

An excerpt from the book:

“How did you happen to pick the bishop of Orlando,” the pope asked, “and not the bishop of Milan, where you worked before, or myself, the bishop of Rome?”

“Anyone who has Disney World in his diocese will probably be open to my project.”
