Scott Bury is a journalist, editor and writer living in Ottawa. His work has been published in the Ottawa Citizen, Applied Arts magazine, Marketing, The Financial Post, Business 2.0, Macworld, MacAddict, Canadian Printer, Studio and several other magazines.

He has two almost-grown children, an orange cat and a loving wife who puts up with a lot.




What happens when a thin boy dresses as a pirate, attaches a jolly roger to his bicycle and starts to hijack strawberries?

When the pirate starts handing his booty over to poor children, the people take his side. But the evil fruit monopoly doesn’t take kindly to pirates. They hire the notorious pirate-killer, Commodore Tiberius J. Swinkill, to hunt Sam down.
Thus begins the epic chase across Canada. It’s broken bicycle against a sailboat on wheels in a chase for the hearts and strawberries of the nation!

This swashbuckling tale of fury and fruit is for children, parents and everyone who loves strawberries, children or pirates.
