Eulonda Kay Lea is an award-winning Filmmaker, Screenwriter, and Novelist. Her passion for diverse characters and complex themes are at the heart of her storytelling. She is a career federal law enforcement special agent with more than 18 years on the job. Her “day job” provides a unique perspective and backdrop for many of the concepts and ideas she explores in her writing.
Eulonda dove into filmmaking by volunteering on 48 Hour Film Projects, a competition in which films are written, shot, edited, and scored in 48 hours. She served as writer, director, co-producer, producer, editor, and production assistant on numerous film teams. These films are by no means Oscar quality; however, these trial by fire experiences ignited her love and appreciation for filmmaking. Since then, Eulonda has enhanced her film education through courses in screenwriting, directing, and producing; memberships in Women in Film & Video, The Writer’s Center, DCTV, and the Independent Filmmaker Project; and on the sets of professional film productions, including her own.
When Eulonda is not swamped (which is rarely) she provides screenplay and writing consultations; especially on white collar crime-related stories, of which she has particular expertise.
