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 and currently MSN.com. I’ve won 60 writing awards, nationally and regionally. I’ve written three books, TIDEFLATS TO TOMORROW, PITCHERS OF BEER and THE BRANDON ROY STORY. Tideflats is a funky tale about half of downtown Seattle. Pitchers is a quirky book about Seattle built around a baseball theme and Roy is the greatest basketball player produced on the streets of Seattle. If you see a common thread here, you should know that I lived in West Seattle when I was born, was raised in north Seattle and now reside in Seattle’s 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.
