Hi! Nice to see you! I'm Frances Rivetti — lifestyle journalist, author, culture seeker
Welcome! I'm Frances. I'm a British/American lifestyle writer, born in a small, English market town at the border the Lincolnshire/Cambridgeshire Fens and for the last three decades, entrenched in the spectacular coastal region of Sonoma County in the San Francisco North Bay area. I am a freelance writer who enjoys sharing the best of the south county at the gateway to Sonoma Wine Country and other interesting, quirky, delicious and/or top flight destinations in Sonoma, Napa, Marin, SF and travel notes and tips elsewhere around the world. I've written two non-fiction books on the food and farming culture of southern Sonoma County and coastal West Marin: Fog Valley Crush and Fog Valley Winter. My first novel (also set in Northern California), Big Green Country, was published in 2019 and awarded Best Western Regional Fiction in the Independent Book Publishers Awards in 2020. My second novel, The House on Liberty Street is set in Petaluma, Sonoma County and will release in fall 2022. Please get in touch if you have any questions about my work or would like to commission me for an article.
