About the Author

T.M. Sell, Ph.D.

I spent 20 years as a working journalist, covering business, the economy and politics, before finishing my Ph.D. and taking up teaching. I also worked for several years in the Washington state Legislature and saw real politics firsthand. I have been published in a variety of publications including salon.com, Washington Law & Politics, and Washington CEO magazine. I am a past president of the Pacific Northwest Political Science Association and a former Washington Civic Educator of the Year. What I hope to bring to this project is a lot of experience writing for diverse audiences; a lot of experience teaching students from myriad backgrounds and interests; and an understanding of the basics and bigger picture of modern politics.
