If you could address your fears, obstacles, and expectations directly, what would you say? Does the life you currently lead look anything like the one you thought you’d be leading back on those day-dreamy teenage afternoons?

Those questions became the jumping off point for a collection of essays in Writer/Producer Patricia Steffy’s “My Letter to Fear: Essays on Life, Love and the Search for Prince Charming.”

“My Letter to Fear” is based on Steffy’s own experiences, as well as the experiences of a variety of women she interviewed, telling stories about aging, abuse, addiction, confidence, relationships, beauty myths and practices, and since we’re in Los Angeles, celebrity.

Published as a book in 2014, the pieces provide the perfect showcase for Steffy’s writing and work and will be featured in a one-night only special showcase event.
