Chandan Sen Gupta was born in 1961 in Bhilai, the steel-producing township in the heart of India. He still cherishes his childhood in this cosmopolitan, industrial town, where he completed his schooling. After obtaining a degree in Civil Engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, he embarked on a career in construction. In the course of his work, he travelled widely in India, South-East Asia, Africa, the Middle-East and Europe. Much of his writing revolves around places he has lived in and the people he has come across. His story on Bahrain, the Middle-East island-kingdom where he presently resides, won him the Best of Bahrain award in 2012. His first novel, Land of Two Seas, published on Amazon and Notion Press, was a thriller based in Bahrain. Unforeseen, also a thriller, is his second book.
