Patricia Lundy is a Los Angeles-based writer who got her start as a film development intern after graduating from UCLA with a BA in English. Her work spans genres and forms, and is focused on elevating the narratives of complicated women. “Kept,” the short film she co-wrote and produced in 2019, has won numerous accolades, including Best Screenplay Narrative Short 2020 at the Queens World Film Festival, Best Picture & Best Director at L’Auteur International Short Film Festival, and was also a 2021 finalist at jellyFEST.
Her drama pilot “Detail Woman” was a Second Rounder in the 2021 Sundance Episodic Lab, and received high praise from The Black List.com. It also earned her a Semifinalist spot in the 2020 Black List x Women in Film Episodic Lab, and was selected as a Second Rounder in the 2020 Austin Film Festival.
Patricia is also a short fiction writer who has sold stories to anthologies and speculative fiction magazines. In addition to working with narrative stories, she has written about the history of death and mourning rituals for places like History Today and Death & the Maiden, an interest formed in part by her experience as a hospice care volunteer.
