Toni Bryan

Biography

I write under the pseudonym of ‘Toni Bryan’, a choice reflected in celebration of my dad and my European travels, and reflects my own personal delight in ‘mucking’ around with language. I believe that language should reflect the individual, in which case my profile photo should hopefully make you smile.

I was born some time ago into a poor working class background, the workhouse was never far away and bread was a luxury meal. I left school at the age of 15 able to read and write and could do enough maths to play darts and work out the price for a pint of British beer; Irish Guinness being my favourite. At the grand age of 41 I graduated from the University of Nottingham, where I discovered that I was never going to be an academic. In 2001 I became a political exile of the UK, wandering the land of Europe in search of El Dorado, only to find Greece and Germany, where I've lived for the past six years. Presently I teach English. I remain optimistic that I’ll still be alive in thirty years’ time. I’ve no plans to return to England.
