Chris Bruce was born in England and educated in Namibia and 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, he 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. He decided to use his knowledge of the sausage industry to write a book of sausage recipes, The Gourmet's Guide to Making Sausage Vol. I. This was followed by Vol. II and two volumes of liqueur making methods and recipes, The Connoisseur's Guide to Making Liqueurs Vols. I and II. He then noticed that people do not have much time to read a little humor. After completing the recipe books he encouraged friends from around the world to send me jokes, anecdotes and cartoons by email. This resulted in seven humorous books under the banner of the TAKE ME TO THE TOILET SERIES which included Plain Funny, Plain Funny Too, Plain Family Fun, Funny But Risqué, Funny But Risqué Too, Golfing Stories and Gay Tales all intended for reading on planes, trains and buses and in the "Thunderbox", as it used to be called, that most private of places where the internet, the source of much modern humor, is not normally accessible. The series has added much amusement to the otherwise idle moments spent in the "BOX" by numerous readers. His most recent book is Autobiography of an Unknown Man; it's the story of his life from his birth in war torn England, emigration to Namibia and childhood and primary schooling there, high school and university in South Africa, my successes and failures in the construction industry including piloting and crashing his own aircraft, building throughout the South African/Angolan Border War and being land-mined, attacked by rocket and mortar fire and ambushed. This was followed by the collapse of his company, two broken marriages and moves to the Far and Middle East in pursuit of re-establishing his self esteem and construction career before retiring.
