He writings appeared in Chinese, Indian, Australian and American publications. His British publishers included Edward Bagshawe, Will Goldston and George Armstrong.

Some of Verrall’s very early performances were given in Chinese costume as a silent act.

His first book was dedicated to Ned Williams (who went on to become Robert Harbin) with whom a friendship began when Williams first arrived in England from South Africa. Among his other friends were Maurice Fogel and Rameses.
