Tihanyi has published eight books of poetry and one short story collection, Truth and Other Fictions(Inanna, 2009), which The Globe and Mail hailed as “an impressive and promising debut…a wonderfully written collection of takes on the elusiveness of truth.”  (Please see BOOKS for a complete list.)

In addition to her own writing, up until 2008 Tihanyi wrote numerous freelance book reviews for The Toronto Star and The National Post. She was also the First Novels columnist for Books in Canada from 1995 to 1999. Her work has appeared in over 40 periodicals and in numerous anthologies.
