Born in North Dakota, James Goertel spent twenty years working in television with ABC, NBC, and ESPN, among others. He now teaches writing at Penn State Erie.

Praise for OH MERCY:

"In OH MERCY, James Goertel explores the tender folds of his brain in an attempt to get us --humanity-- to better understand our own. And more than that, he succeeds. This book is a fragile, brilliant, and incredibly moving collection."
~ Mathieu Cailler, author of LOSS ANGELES
