Malena has been giving workshops and speeches about working mothers and how they can take the time out of their often busy schedules to find their passions in life. In Dating da Vinci, the lead character, Ramona Elise is a widowed mother of 2 and linguist, struggles to find “la dolce vita,” and a charming Italian immigrant named Leonardo da Vinci helps her find new joys, all without feeling like she’s leaving her family or her job behind.
Malena knows that this is an issue many women struggle with—she went through the same sort of issues while writing her books! As a working mother of 3, Malena knows how busy things can get, and how important it is to keep your joys and passions at the top of your list, along with priorities.
