Patricia Steffy attended Kenyon College and American University. She is a recent refugee from the corporate world where she worked as an analyst for a law firm for more than 16 years. An escape plan started to develop as she pursued her interests as a writer and producer.
As co-owner of Circe’s World Films, she has been involved in co- and exec-producing a number of feature and short films ranging from broad comedy to psychological drama, including the award-winning short "Touch." She is currently developing "Dating in LA and Other Urban Myths" as a web series. A concept presentation has been shot, and stars Lesley Fera ("Pretty Little Liars"), Jen Lilley ("Days of Our Lives"), Tamara Taylor ("Bones"), and Kris Polaha ("Backstrom").
In 2014, Steffy published a collection of essays called "My Letter to Fear: Essays on Life, Love and the Pursuit of Prince Charming." Over the course of two years, Steffy conducted interviews with the fabulous women around her and their equally fantastic friends. She put no restrictions on age, or ethnicity. They just needed to be willing to answer some questions. Steffy asked them about the expectations they had for their lives when they were very young versus their current realities as adults. She asked them to tell her the best things about themselves (a question which was surprisingly difficult for people to answer) and the worst things. Those answers—the funny, the sad, and the hysterical—and her own experiences became the basis for those essays.
Unique traits: My writing style has been called "wryly observational," and I've decided to embrace it.
Dating in LA and Other Urban Myths
Television (Comedy) Writer Kate McAlister is lost. While Kate is an educated, successful business woman, she finds herself stymied when it comes to navigating the seemingly endless set of pitfalls inherent to the dating scene in Los Angeles. After all, no one comes to Los Angeles to find love; people here barely find like. Songs of found love are written about San Francisco or New York, not Los Angeles for a very good reason: L.A. is where dating comes to die. Perhaps she has spent too much time wandering through literary realities, but as Kate begins her journey she fervently longs for more formal times where intentions were declared before fluids were exchanged. And she would very much like to understand why a sane person, who would never pick up a hitchhiker, does not think twice about going home with a stranger met in a bar. But these are the scenarios Kate is thrust into upon receiving an email from The EX proclaiming his joy at becoming engaged to someone he has known but briefly - a fact particularly difficult for Kate to reconcile given the decade she spent dating him. Designed as a web series, based on a popular blog, "Dating in L.A. and Other Urban Myths" follows Kate as she tries to accept the advice of her friends: she will now have to date in L.A. despite the reality that she is not 21, not a supermodel, and can't comprehend why anyone thinks anal bleaching is good idea.
