Ray GreenCountry: United Kingdom
Ray 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. Buyout is based on Ray's 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. Buyout is Ray's first novel and Payback is the sequel. Ray is currently working on the third title in the series, Chinese Whispers, scheduled for release in 2015.
