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.

She also plays medieval and early Renaissance music on early wind instruments, including portative organ.
