Steve Bassett


Steve Bassett was born and raised in Newark’s crime-ridden Third Ward and, although far removed during a career as an award-winning journalist, he has always been proud of the sobriquet Jersey Guy. He has been legally blind for almost a decade, but hasn’t let this slow him down. He received three Emmys for investigative documentaries, and the California Bar Association’s Medallion Award for Distinguished Reporting on the Administration of Justice. Polish on his mother’s side and Montenegrin on his father’s, with grandparents who spoke little or no English, his early outlook was ethnic and suspicious. It was a world in which cabbage, potatoes, sausage and heavy homemade dumplings reigned.
He has written one fiction book: “Father Divine’s Bikes,” is the first book of his Passaic River Trilogy, published in 2018 (2018 Solo Medalist Winner in the E-Book General Fiction category of New Apple Fifth Annual Indie Book Awards; 2018 Finalist International Book Awards (American Book Fest) in Genre Fiction; and 2018 Finalist Best Book Awards (American Book Fest) in General Fiction); the second book of the trilogy, “Payback-Tales of Love, Hate and Revenge,” was launched in late 2019 and is already collecting it’s share of five-star reviews from critics and reviers; and two nonfiction books, one published by Ashley Books, “The Battered Rich,” and “Golden Ghetto: How the Americans and French Fell In and Out of Love During the Cold War,” published by Red Hen Press under its Xeno imprint. He lives in Placitas, New Mexico with his wife, Darlene Chandler Bassett.
