Grandpa Ernie’s Secrets-

The Sistine Chapel after hundreds of years of smoke and soot has been removed. Many of the Italian people were upset after seeing it cleaned for the first time in centuries. We were there while it was being done and then returned when it had been finished.

January 25 – 2019 – My new version of Granpa Ernie’s Secrets is on Amazon now. It’s a spy novel with all of the current cast of characters from North Korea to Iran, and more.

Check out the books section on this site to see all of my novels.

If you have read Ernie, read this new version. It’s twice as long and full of twists, turns and some fun. I write under the name R. C. Matthews.

You can google me and follow me as well.

This is St. Mark’s Square or Piazza San Marko, as seen from the water. This is the view that the sailors saw as the Ever Ready sailed into Venice. Read my novel “Sailing Away,” now. The Italians were one of the first to have an assembly line. They built sailing ships in that method centuries ago.
