Graham Tempest is an accountant and novelist based in Florida.
After a seesaw British education at eight different schools he squeaked into Cambridge by the skin of his teeth and spent his college days writing for the university newspaper and boating on the Cam; he was a co-owner of the dark green punt George F. Babbitt.
He graduated as a mechanical engineer, switched to accounting and worked for an investment bank in London. He later moved to Los Angeles where he practised as a CPA specialising in international tax planning. Along the way he discovered Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, currently in the news, which features in his books as the home of Tisch, Steele’s wealthy client. He divides his time between Florida and Oxfordshire playing hit-and-miss golf on both sides of the Atlantic.
Steele, the central character in the CASINO novels, is an accountant with a shady past and Tempest admits to some resemblance. Addicted to travel, he has visited most of the same places as Steele.
