a few Words About Me
Hello. I’m Dachary Carey. I write stuff. It’s my thing.
Also, I love coffee.
Good coffee, though. None of this mass-produced Dunkin’ Donuts swill. (Yes, I live in New England and am well-aware of the blasphemy in that statement. I stand by it.)
The amount of stuff I write may be in direct proportion to the amount of coffee I’ve had today.
We have two dogs. I talk about them – maybe a little more than I should. If you follow me on social media, be warned: I’ll post the occasional obligatory dog pic.
Still here? Ok. On to the slightly more boring stuff:
I’m a professional writer. I’ve been writing for over 15 years, and I quit my day job to do it professionally a decade ago.
I write about lots of stuff. ALL THE THINGS. Curious? Just Google my name. (Say my name, b*tch!)
I used to keep a portfolio on my website, but the availability of the sources kept changing, which made lots of broken links… that didn’t make anyone happy.
If you really need some examples:
- Lots of legal writing
- Far too much writing for the funeral industry
- Writing about precious metals
- Investment topics
- Ghostwriting business books
- Fashion writing (I was actually the world’s foremost expert on bras a few years ago)
- Technical writing, including procedure guides, spec documents, and online help portals
My specialty is quickly understanding difficult or technical topics, and then finding an accessible way to communicate them to non-technical readers.
In 2017, I’ve begun publishing fiction. I started a publishing imprint: Bright Little Light Press. I also started a companion podcast, as a small indie publisher, aimed at writers: Beyond Writing. After my current technical writing contract ends, I intend to focus on my publishing imprint and pause on freelance writing work for a while.
If you have an interesting project, though, feel free to contact me. Clearly I’m willing to take on far too many interesting projects for my own good.
Mostly, though, I want to see where this next phase in my career can take me.
