Nathaniel Vinton is a writer based in Massachusetts. His nonfiction book, The Fall Line; How American Ski Racers Conquered a Sport on the Edge, was published in paperback form in 2016 by WW Norton and Company. It is available in bookstores, or you can order it here.
From 2007 to 2016, Vinton was a member of the sports investigations team at the New York Daily News, reporting frequently on performance-enhancing drugs, brain injuries, and other legal matters affecting the sports world. He and his colleagues produced pieces like "Babe Ruthless" and "Web of Lies". In 2009, they published American Icon: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in America's Pastime (Alfred A. Knopf). In 2014 they first revealed the existence and outlines of the U.S. federal investigation of FIFA corruption. The global scandal that followed led to criminal charges against more than 40 soccer executives and corporations, and the downfall of Sepp Blatter.
A lifelong student of Alpine ski racing, Vinton has covered the sport for Ski Racing, The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, SKI, Skiing, Men's Journal, Skiing History and other publications.
