‘Anything but dull, darling,’ were the words of wisdom Fliss Chester’s mother gave her as a teenager, and she’s tried to live up to them. Her varied career has included years as a sub editor and writer for Ideal Home, an interior designer, a freelance journalist, a short foray into the world of finance, and most recently a wine buff and Head of Gin (honestly, that's a real job) at the independent wine shop she runs with her husband. Oh, and of course a novelist! Having spent many years in London, Fliss now lives in the Surrey Hills with her husband and their cat – both of whom are extremely supportive of her writing. Although it's arguable that the cat has ulterior motives for wanting Fliss – or perhaps just her lap – at home more often...

Snowballs! is Fliss’s first novel and is a romp around the mountains – think Made in Chelsea meets Ski Sunday with an added dash of romance. It’s set in those hedonistic twenty-something years when the world’s your oyster, except you’re not sure if you’re allergic to seafood or not… The first in a series published by Orion, it is followed by Summer at the Vineyard, set amid the glamorous surroundings of a Burgundy chateau, with Meet Me on the Riviera due in summer 2019.
