Scott De Buitléir is an author, speaker, and activist.
His latest book, Forgiving Jake, is a short novel based on Sarah, a young woman whose life is changed utterly while waiting on her boyfriend for their date night. It is a tale of love, loss, and learning how to move on from the past.
Not limiting himself to one genre, Scott has also published two non-fiction books and a bilingual collection of poetry. The Irish Outlander explores how the Irish diaspora connect with their homeland while living abroad, while Yesterdates is a lighthearted collection of dating stories in the search for Mr. Right. His poetry collection, Fás | Growth, features over a decade of poems in English and Irish, covering themes of identity, love, loss, family connections, and gratitude.
With a previous career in media and broadcasting, Scott is also founder of the Irish LGBT publication, EILE Magazine. He is also involved with poltical and charity work, and lives in Cork city with his partner, Stephen.
