Born in 1952, Bryan was educated in Tiruchy, Tamilnadu, India, before joining The New College, Chennai, as a teacher of English in 1975. He has been in Oman, as teacher and Administrator since 2004.
Bryan was awarded a Ph. D. in English by the University of Madras, in March 2010, for his work on the "Anglo-Indian" community, as it is represented in the pages of recent English fiction.
Bryan's first book, a novel entitled, "No Accident", was published in June 2011. This is his second publication, in the form of 2 plays: "Daniel, please" which takes a look at the not-so-noble world of college-level teaching, and "Upside Down" which explores the abiding "Anglo-Indian" question--to be or not to be.
