  • One crisp spring evening, on a remote island in the Yellow Sea, a Korean gangster kidnapped me and forced me to drink tree alcohol with him. We ended up singing John Denver songs together until sunrise. True story. That’s what it took for me to recognize my calling. As I shambled home that morning, it hit me —

    “I need to start writing some of this down.”

    A migratory Montréaler who has returned home after over a decade abroad, Matt Poll's background lies in academia. However, his travels led him to new pursuits — birds, writing, proofreading, and even Karaoke. Recognizing that everyone has a story, Matt knew after that night of revelry that he had more than his fair share.

    On top of DARK FLOCK, he has written a memoir about the shenanigans involved with being a foreign birdwatcher there, as well as a thriller novel set in Korea’s DMZ.

    Links to his published stories and international birding adventures can be found on his blog, Snowy Owl Lost.
