About the Author

Nicole Caley is a writer, political junkie, book lover, and experienced facebook fighter. She recently received her Masters degree in English from the University of North Dakota and continues to live and work in the state.

She would describe herself as a liberal rather than a Democrat, and if pushed to be more specific, would probably fall most comfortably into the label of Democratic Socialist. She genuinely believes in the power of collective action and that we all do better when we all do better.

Her worldview comes in large part from her amazing parents who, although at times more moderate than she, instilled in her from an early age the importance of things like fairness, justice, the value of all human beings, acceptance of difference, and the responsibility inherent in being a citizen of this planet.

She strives every day to live those values, and this blog is a part of that.
