“Build bridges, not walls.” – Suzy Kassem


Welcome! I’m Rhiannon Paine: writer, North Californian, Anglophile, part-time insomniac, and cat person. I love dogs too, but my cat here doesn’t.

Sometimes when I’m awake in the long watches of the night, I write blog posts: about Mysteries, or Travel, or whatever else pops into my head (Mixed Nuts).

I’ve seen the Beatles at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, protested in Berkeley, sailed with the British Merchant Navy through the Suez Canal, studied Victorian literature in Liverpool, and documented software in Tokyo. And I’ve been known to do a bit of Scottish Country Dancing. But what have I done lately? Please see News.

Is that really true about the British Merchant Navy? See About Me.

Have I written a book about living in Japan? See Publications.

Past blog posts are listed by title in the Archives.

And if you’d like to, please do get in touch! I’d love to hear from you.
