Scott Bury


Scott Bury can’t stay in one genre. After a 20-year career in journalism, he turned to writing fiction. “Sam, the Strawb Part,” a children’s story, came out in 2011, with all the proceeds going to an autism charity. Next was a paranormal short story for grown-ups, “Dark Clouds.”

The Bones of the Earth, a historical fantasy, came out in 2012. It was followed in 2013 with One Shade of Red, an erotic romance.

He has several mysteries and thrillers in the former Kindle Worlds program: Torn Roots, Palm Trees & Snowflakes, Dead Man Lying, Echoes, Stealth The Wife Line and The Three-Way. With the cancellation of the Kindle Worlds, Scott is re-writing these titles. The new, expanded Torn Roots and Palm Trees & Snowflakes are now available.

He then wrote a military memoir trilogy: Army of Worn Soles, Under the Nazi Heel and Walking Out of War, the true story of a Canadian-born man drafted into the Soviet Red Army in World War II.

Since then, he has launched a new Wine Country Mystery series, with the first title, Wildfire.

Scott’s articles have been published in newspapers and magazines in Canada, the US, UK and Australia.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, he grew up in Thunder Bay, Ontario. He holds a BA from Carleton University’s School of Journalism. He has two mighty sons, two pesky cats and a loving wife who puts up with a lot.

He is a recipient of Maclean Hunter’s Top 6 Award and a member of a team that won a Neal Award for business reporting.
