About the Author:

Tyler R. Tichelaar is a seventh generation resident of Marquette, Michigan. Since age eight he wanted to be a writer, and at age sixteen, he began writing his first novel, which years later was published as "The Only Thing That Lasts." Tyler has a Ph.D. in Literature from Western Michigan University, and Bachelor and Master's Degrees in English from Northern Michigan University. He is the current President of the Upper Peninsula Publishers and Authors Association. He is the owner of his own publishing company, Marquette Fiction, and of Superior Book Productions, a professional book review, editing, and proofreading service. In 2009, Tyler was awarded the Best Historical Fiction Award in the Reader Views Literary Awards for his novel Narrow Lives. He has since gone on to sponsor that award. In 2011, he received the Barb H. Kelly Historic Preservation Award from the Marquette Beautification and Restoration Committee for his book My Marquette and he received the Marquette County Arts Award that same year for an "Outstanding Writer." Besides writing about Upper Michigan, Tyler has always been interested in the supernatural and the Gothic. In 2012, he published "The Gothic Wanderer: From Transgression to Redemption"-a study of Gothic literature from 1794 to the present day. He has also written Spirit of the North: a paranormal romance, a historical fiction novel with a ghost in its storyline; and a series of novels about King Arthur, beginning with Arthur's Legacy, which include many Gothic elements, including an appearance by Dracula in the fourth novel, Lilith's Love. He is currently working on writing Haunted Marquette. Tyler's many other books include" The Marquette Trilogy", "The Best Place", "Creating a Local Historical Book", "Willpower: An Original Play about Marquette's Ossified Man", and "King Arthur's Children: A Study in Fiction and Tradition." In addition, Tyler has been the President of the Upper Peninsula Publishers and Authors Association since 2008, is the former guest co-host of the Authors Access Internet Radio Show (2007-2012), and the book reviewer for the magazine Marquette Monthly. Today, Tyler continues to live in Marquette, where the roar of Lake Superior, mountains of snow, and sandstone architecture inspire his writing. He has many future books in the planning.
