Josephine Tey, 25 July 189613 February 1952, birth name Elizabeth Mackintosh, was a Scottish-born novelist and playwright. She wrote some of the most acclaimed mysteries in the English language and her books are still popular today. She attended the anstey Physical Training College in Birmingham, England and became a physical education instructor before publishing her first short fiction in periodicals such as the English Review. Her first novel appeared under the pseudonym Gordon Daviot in 1929. Her best known work, the radio play, The Daughter of Time (1951), is still widely admired not just as a defence of Richard III of England but also as a study of the nature and practice of history writing itself.
