Adventuring in over 60 countries to gather material for his bestselling books, Bruns has won the USA REBA Grand Prize, numerous Book of the Year honors by ForeWord Magazine, and several international literary awards. He has been featured on two separate occasions by ABC’s 20/20 and contributed to CNN, Yahoo Travel, The Travel Channel, and Reader’s Digest.
After dropping everything to chase a woman who worked at sea, Bruns became the only American waiter in the 30-year history of Carnival Cruise Lines to complete a contract without quitting. He is the unofficial authority on cruise ships and author of the best-selling and award-winning Cruise Confidential series.
After several years residing in Dracula’s hometown, he and his Romanian wife now live in Las Vegas with their two cats, Julius and Caesar. Since 2013 he has volunteered weekly at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge and is devoted to veterans organizations, such as Operation Homefront and Wounded Warriors Project, to which he’s donated over a thousand of his books.
