Hi! Nice to see you! I'm Frances Rivetti — lifestyle journalist, author, culture seeker
Welcome! I'm Frances. I'm a British/American freelance journalist and author living the good life in the spectacular coastal region of Sonoma County, Northern California. Sonoma Wine Country and neighboring Napa, coastal Marin and Mendocino Counties are bursting with wonderful stories. I call it The Tastiest Little Place on Earth! And I enjoy sharing my lifestyle, culture, arts and travel notes from home as well as on my travels in the world. I've written two award-winning 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 won Best Western Regional Fiction in the Independent Book Publishers Awards in 2020. My second novel, released in December 2022, The House on Liberty Street — Home of Second Chances, is a roller-coaster, 24-hour family drama set during the holidays in a fictional Victorian house in historic West Petaluma, Sonoma County. The House on Liberty Street is a finalist in the 2023 National Indie Excellence Awards. The House on Liberty Street is now available as an audiobook, narrated by Jennifer March. Look for it in October 2023 wherever you buy your audiobooks. I'm at work on my third novel, a contemporary climate fiction story, set in a house on the rugged Sonoma Coast. Please get in touch if you have any questions about my work or would like to commission me for an article.
