Patty Dann

The first word I remember learning as a child was eavesdrop, and I've been drawn to stories ever since. I've published three novels and three memoirs, although they come from the same place, a brew of memory and imagination. My first novel, MERMAIDS, become a movie with Cher, Winona Ryder and Christina Ricci.
