Tinney Heath

About me

Tinney Heath is the author of the novel A Thing Done, set in Florence in the thirteenth century. She has long been fascinated by Dante’s Florence – not that she’d want to live there; she knows too much about it now for that. But Dante’s life and writings are so rich in story subjects that she won’t run out of material any time soon. She writes about Florence, but she reads about everything. She also plays medieval and early Renaissance music on early wind instruments, including portative organ.
