Hi. I’m Matt Stansberry, an Ohio-born writer focusing on natural history and biodiversity. My first book is Rust Belt Arcana, available November 2018 from Belt Publishing.

I lived in Oregon for a while and contributed to national fishing magazines, including On The Water and The Fly Fish Journal.

Flyfish Journal

Now I live in the Piedmont of central North Carolina with my wife and three young sons and write essays about the wildlife I encounter in my new home.

You can find the first essay featuring my new ecosystem here.
