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. Its sequel, The Children of the Seventh Son, followed in 2020.
His second book, however, was an erotic romance titled One Shade of Red.
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 has also written two mystery series: the Hawaiian Storm series featuring FBI Special Agent Vanessa Storm includes Torn Roots, Palm Trees & Snowflakes and Dead Man Lying. The other series are the Wine Country mysteries, 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.
