SQL subtract two times to get minutes - SQL Server 2008

Hello experts.

I have two string variables that I need to subtract to find their times, and need some help with the syntax please.

DECLARE @S1 varchar(10)  = '09:15 AM'
DECLARE @S2 varchar(10)  = '10:15 AM'
DECLARE @S3 int

set @S3 = @s1 - @s2

select @s3 -- would like the answer to be 60 (minutes).

Thoughts?

Thanks
