Born in Hertfordshire, England, Nick Corble has written across a broad spectrum of subjects. Much of his writing, including his first book, Walking on Water, focuses on the UK's canal network, but there is more to his work than this. His other books have covered walking, Indian Motorcycles and a history of the fairground attraction the Wall of Death and a history of Fairground Transport. His most recent work 'A Beginners Guide to Living On The Waterways' (The History Press 2017), written in conjunction with Allan Ford, has been the subject of significant press interest.
In 2008 he turned his hand to fiction, publishing his first novel Golden Daze. Well received, this book covers a year in the life of a young man home from university trying to work out what life, women and work are all about. The timespan is more like a season than a year though, as his period of confusion just happens to coincide with his football team's best ever season, with both stories coming together into a climatic scene at Wembley, the home of football. A second novel is currently in the process of being written, but for those who can't wait he has published two short stories for the Kindle, Playing The Piano and Field of Gold, which brings events in Golden Daze up to date.
