Peter Ralph spent his early business life as a chartered accountant, specialising in corporate recoveries and reconstructions. In the mid 1980's he became CEO of a mid-sized private company and grew it to the point where it was successfully listed. Eventually, Peter became a share and deriviatives trader and continues in that field today. In addition to financial markets and writing, he has a keen interest in squash, tennis, golf and snow skiing. The breadth and duration of his business career has prepared him well for writing suspense novels based around business themes.
