Bryan Murphy was born and raised in England. Once he had got an education, he headed off into the wider world. His ability to teach English as a foreign language has enabled him to live and work in places like Portugal, Angola, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, and Bulgaria. He now works as a translator in Turin, Italy. Although he is a relative newcomer to poetry, over the last year or so his work has appeared in AABYE'S BABY, GRAVITY, MAELSTROM, MOVEO ANGELUS, SNAKESKIN, SWITCHED-ON GUTENBURG, and elsewhere. He prefers electronic to print outlets because of their editors' faster responses and their more international audience.
