Welcome to danraley.com

I’m a Seattle-based journalist who has worked coast to coast, from print to digital, always tirelessly and passionately. I’ve written 8,000-plus stories for newspapers, magazines and websites, with stops at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, MSN.com and now Boeing. I’ve won 60 writing awards, nationally and regionally. My fourth book, HOW SEATTLE BECAME A BIG-LEAGUE SPORTS TOWN: FROM GEORGE WILSON TO RUSSELL WILSON, will be released this spring by Seattle’s Fairgreens Publishing. It’s been a 10-year project. It’ll be a talker. It’s the ultimate book for the Seattle sports fan. It’s got a Where Are They Now theme. In subtle fashion, it’s a personal memoir. Can’t wait to share it with everyone. Check out my other titles on this site, all Seattle-related books. If you see a common thread here, you should know that I lived in West Seattle when I was born, lived briefly on Mercer Island, was raised in north Seattle and now reside in Seattle’s eastern suburbs. And I’ll be the first to tell you that Seattle is the greatest city on the planet. Want a book? Drop me a line in the reply section below.
