He's the author of Raising a Child to Be Bilingual and Bicultural, a prizewinning book published bilingually in Japan, and various short dramatic works for the student market. His novels, Tough Love, Tender Heart and Plan B, were published in 2008 and 2010, and his nonfiction Class Struggle: Journal of a Teacher In Up to His Ears followed shortly after. His most recent books are Professional Wrestling in the Pacific Northwest: A History, 1883 to the Present, published in late 2017, and Gene Kiniski: Canadian Wrestling Legend, published in early 2019. Currently, he's following up with an entertaining survey detailing how American democracy has become so undemocratic over the course of nearly two and a half centuries—and especially in recent decadesSteven Verrier lives in the Seattle area.
