Carla J. Hanna is the author of young adult romance and coming of age fiction novels for readers who enjoyed Nicholas Sparks' A Walk to Remember, Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love, Gayle Forman's If I Stay, or John Green's The Fault in Our Stars.

A former housewife of Santa Monica, California, Ms. Hanna shares an insider's perspective on Hollywood and celebrity influence in her multicultural novels. These are not steamy novels; they are realistic contemporary stories that examine the cultural clash between Hollywood values and religious morality.

Mrs. Hanna urges her readers to take control of the messages about sexuality, youthfulness, and beauty coming from Hollywood and stand up for their own personal convictions rather than follow the social media herd. As the entertainment business's consumers, we have the power to change the messages that affect our sense of self and the actions of our children. Help be the change.

LOVE. LIES. ACTING. THE STARLET SERIES.

Starlet's Man - Lights, Camera, and Lies. High school student athlete, Manny Biro, is caught between the boy he should be and the man he wants to become.

Starlet's Run - In a world where an actress is a product and everyone is a critic, can young love survive? Should it?
