About Frances Rivetti
British/American journalist, Frances Rivetti's trademark, trans-continental flair for reporting subjects of both international and local appeal propels a warm and highly personal independent reporting style.
Published in print magazines and online for clients within the United States, Great Britain and Australia, Rivetti earned her writer’s credentials in vocational newspaper placement with the UK National Council for the Training of Journalists in the late 1980s. Though Rivetti writes regular general magazine features and frequent community articles for her hometown periodicals (owned and operated by the New York Times Newspaper Group) she has, over the past three years, developed an intense passion for multiple daily posts on her popular Southern Sonoma Country Life blog.
With a fast-growing local readership in Southern Sonoma County and subscribers from around the world, this model of independent lifestyle and community journalism is becoming increasingly appealing to ranks of online readers seeking an authentic voice on matters ranging from wine, arts and education, health and nutrition, local and national government, entertainment and more.
