Harold Lea Brown
Harold Lea Brown believes that story is life well told and a way to explore the human condition. It has always been a part of who he is—it is in his blood. In his teens, he told story through music when he played in a rock band. Later he told story through award winning poetry and used story as a way of communicating corporate history and vision as a chief business strategist. He has also published award winning technical articles in the field of information management where he received the Infomatics Award for advancing the information management field. His family roots are Norwegian and Finnish, where story is core to passing on history to future generations.
In 2017, Harold was named one of “The Top 100 Indie Writers in the World,” in a multimedia book published by Del Weston and Theresa Weston on iTunes. In the past ten years his writing has been recognized at more than fifty film festival and screenwriting events in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Australia, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Spain. His award-winning work includes feature length screenplays, teleplays, web series and miniseries, spanning the drama, thriller, crime/mystery, action/adventure and comedy genres. His sub genre specialties include government, politics and technology—fields he has worked in for more than thirty years. He has studied producing and various storytelling formats, appearing in Canadian, U.S. and international television and film productions. He is the recipient of the Gerri Cook Memorial Award for the Most Promising Producer and is a producer of television, feature and new media projects.
His first two novels in the Deadly Invisible Enemies (DIE) techno-thriller series received the international 2016 eLit Silver Medal Book Award for best anthology. Harold is currently developing a multi-platform series based on his DIE techno-thriller series and a television drama series inspired by Louis Riel, based on an award winning screenplay he has written.
