Daniela Tully has been working in the field of storytelling for decades, mainly in film and television.
She began her career working with famed film director Uli Edel (known for films such as Last Exit to Brooklyn and the Oscar-nominated Baader Meinhoff Komplex), learning the craft of film making on sets all over the world.
She then went on to work as head of script development, and later as film producer, both in television and film.
She has been involved in projects such as the critically-acclaimed Fair Game, the box-office hits Contagion and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and the Oscar-winning The Help.
Hotel On Shadow Lake is her debut novel and has already been published in North America, the UK, the British Commonwealth, Serbia and France, followed by Italy and Denmark early next year.
Daniela lives in Dubai with her husband and daughter, and in addition to writing novels, also teaches film at Middlesex University Dubai.
