Ray Green

ray-green1Ray Green is married with two daughters and lives in West Sussex. He graduated from Southampton University with a BSc in Physics and then went on to a career spanning some 30 years in the electronics manufacturing industry. For much of that time, he was operating at Director level in several different companies, and so is well qualified to give an insight into the world of business and corporate politics.

Now, having retired early from the corporate rat-race, Ray spends almost half of his time in southern Spain, where he owns an apartment. This is where he does much of his writing: his books inspired by his own real-life experiences in business.

Ray’s first book Buyout is based on his actual experience of carrying out a management buyout. It is, however, a work of fiction: the companies, characters and much of the plot in Buyout are different from those that figured in the MBO which inspired this story. The ‘Roy Groves Thriller’ series continues with Payback and Chinese Whispers, books which explore the dark world of deceit, corruption, and criminality which is perhaps more prevalent than you might imagine in big business.

The fourth book, ‘Horizontal Living’, sees the main protagonist of the series, Roy Groves, retiring from the turbulent world of business to an expat community in Spain’s Costa del Sol. The shenanigans which ensue make for a darkly comic thriller.
