Susan Jarvis Bryant is originally from Kent in the U.K. Her love of words dates back to her early childhood and much time spent at Benn Brothers book publishing company. Her father and grandfather worked there, giving her the gift of a whole warehouse full of imaginative marvels to choose from—The Railway Children, The Treasure Seekers, Moominsummer Madness, The Wombles (with an exciting book launch on Wimbledon Common, no less), The Time Machine, and many, many more. This access to a bounty of beautiful words was a curious young girl’s inspiration to pursue a life steeped in literature. Susan is a church secretary living on the coastal plains of Texas. A shared love of poetry drew her to her new home. She met her Texan husband while publishing her work online. It has been said that “Britain and America are two nations divided by a common language.” —Susan disagrees. Susan has poetry published in the U.K. webzines, Lighten Up Online, Snakeskin, and the American Light. She is also published on Expansive Poetry Online and in Openings (anthologies of poems by Open University Poets in the U.K.). Read her poetry published by The Society of Classical Poets here.
