SUSAN BRYANT lives in Waterloo, Ontario, where she taught English for 25 years at Renison University College. She migrated from the U.S. as a teenager to attend the University of Toronto and has happily made Canada her home.
Raising her family in Elmira, Ontario, she witnessed in 1989 the devastating contamination of the town’s water with toxic chemicals from a local factory. Ever since, she has been a local activist for a clean environment, especially focused on water issues. To relax when that work gets stressful, she finds a quiet spot and spies on birds.
