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.

Hey My Fellow Movie Lovers...

A Bison, Virgo, devoted daughter, yoga and spinning enthusiasts, graduate of  the "mecca" - Howard University's School of Communications, former publicist, actress, branding influencer and "doggie mom" to an adorably smart-energetic maltese are just a few of the characteristics that make up the essence of me -- Carla Renata.

Formerly of, where I Co-Hosted "On Air With Tony Sweet", this Fall, I will be hosting a new show for Black Hollywood Live owned by E! Correspondent Maria Menounos  and am a freelance contributor for NPR's Weekend All Things Considered.

I absolutely adore talking about all things cinema and it is my sincere hope that although not every opinion I have will or will not be embraced, know that I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share!  Enjoy and see you on the red carpet!!!
