Surendra Pratap Singh, (S.P. Singh) was born in a village in Uttar Pradesh, India (6 November 1962). After primary education from a village school, he passed his ISC from UP Sainik School, Lucknow. Thereafter, he did his military training from NDA and IMA before getting commissioned as an officer in 1983. During a patrolling assignment in 1998 in Mizoram, he passed by a haunted lake. When asked why there was no human settlement around that water body, a Gorkha soldier narrated him its folktale. The story inspired him to pick up writing, which later became his passion.[1]

Presently he lives in Dehradun.

In more than a decade, he has penned down about sixty short stories and four novels. The first short story collection Dying Shadows[2] was published on 30 October 2004, the second, Truth and Beyond in 2006.[3] Mist, Dew and Raindrops was published on 20 February 2017.[4] His first novel, Parrot under the Pine Tree was published on 1 May 2017.[5]
