Chris Bruce was born in England and educated in South Africa. After a long career in the construction industry in South Africa, Namibia, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Oman and the United Arab Emirates and a spell setting up and operating a fresh and processed sausage factory in Bangkok, Chris finally retired to Hua Hin in Thailand. Not being Thai, unable to speak the language, no longer a part of the construction "EXPAT NETWORK," it was not long before he became somewhat bored with life. One way to alleviate the boredom was to write. Chris decided to use his knowledge of the sausage industry to write a book of sausage making methods and recipes. This was followed by a book of liqueur making methods and recipes. Chris realizing that people do not have much time to read a little humor encouraged friends from around the world to send him jokes and anecdotes by email. This led to eight humorous books with jokes and anecdotes under the banner of the TAKE ME TO THE TOILET series. These were followed by Sausage: 91 Ideas for Making a Meal of It and Meat Loaves and Hamburger Patties. His latest book, Autobiography of an Unknown Man, is the story of his life from his birth in war torn England, his emigration to Namibia and his childhood there, school and university in South Africa, his successes and failures in the construction industry including building throughout the South African/Angolan Border War, his broken marriages and his moves to the Far East and Middle East before retiring. All Chris' books are available in print and eBook formats on all major internet bookstores.
