Scott McGlothlen is an American writer best known for The Bare InkSlinger - a bold and acclaimed blog on baring it all: mind, body, and soul. Inspired by his experiments and philosophies on living more transparently, his mostly humorous essays from daily life go to extremely vulnerable places by not only fully stripping down emotionally, but occasionally physically for the whole world to see. This wildly unconventional twist on living in total exposure has garnered a community of nearly ten-thousand readers, many who feel inspired to also experiment with transparency, vulnerability, and even body positivity.
Scott’s debut book, Breaking Glass Balloons: Short Stories of Sheer Embarrassment, has been hailed as some of his best work yet. This short story memoir takes his brutal honesty to new levels by recalling his most embarrassing moments from childhood on up to that pivotal moment that changed everything. With 4.9 stars on Amazon, readers have found themselves laughing out loud, occasionally tearing up, and connecting more deeply than they ever expected.
