Abhirup Dhar was born in Kolkata and has lived in various cities and towns. A banker by profession, he is passionate about writing and has been doing so ever since he was a child. He also has a keen interest in movies and reviewed them for certain portals after which he got his first book out, initially penned for the sheer joy of it – 'Once Again… With Love!', a quirky take on modern-day relationships. He believes the best stories are always the ones simply written from the heart and for the heart! He then celebrated storytelling in his next outing with 'Stories Are Magical' and readers had a fun, relaxing read again. Abhirup is now delving into horror with 'Hold That Breath!', focused to tell different kinds of stories. He currently lives in Mumbai.
