Sanjay Chopra is a pilot with an international airline, having flown for the past 15 years. This has given him the opportunity to travel the world and explore his interest in the history of various cultures. He spent enormous amounts of time, as a child, with his grandfather who was an amazing story teller and an avid reader and both of which he inherited. What particularly caught his fancy were the gaps in history; the unknown little details, which then become fodder for his fiction. He decided to polish his writing skills by training at the London School of Journalism. A couple of his short stories have been published and short listed for anthologies. Turaché? won the Invisible Ink and the Sunpenny publishing contest from the UK , A Fate Worse Than… was on the winners list of the Creative Writers competition and Men of the Horse was on the highly recommended list of The Millennium Writers and Fish publishing awards. Authors that he reads and rereads are Stephen King, Wilbur Smith and Len Deighton. He lives in Mumbai, India with his wife, Tisca Chopra, who is an actress and they are working on a number of film scripts together. He is currently working on another collection of short stories and a novel set in the backdrop of terrorism in Kashmir.
