Meet the Author

Tyler R. Tichelaar is a seventh generation Marquette, Michigan resident. Since age eight he wanted to be a writer. Influenced by stories his grandfather and other family members told him, at age thirteen he wrote his first historical story set in Upper Michigan and at age sixteen, he began writing his first local historical novel.

Tyler has a Ph.D. in Literature from Western Michigan University, and Bachelor and Master’s Degrees from Northern Michigan University. Tyler is the regular guest host of Authors Access Internet Radio and 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 Promotions, a professional
book review, editing, and proofreading service.

Tyler spent thousands of hours researching and writing The Marquette Trilogy: Iron Pioneers, The Queen City, and Superior Heritage, which tell the story of Marquette, Michigan’s history in fiction from 1849-1999.

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 local history book My Marquette: Explore the Queen City of the North, and he received the Marquette
County Arts Award that same year for an “Outstanding Writer.” Tyler’s additional regional and historical fiction titles include The Only Thing That Lasts and Spirit of the North: a paranormal romance. Tyler has also published the scholarly works The Gothic Wanderer: From Transgression to Redemption, Gothic Fiction 1794-Present and King Arthur’s Children: A Study in Fiction and Tradition, the latter being a precursor to a series of novels about King Arthur he is currently working on.

Tyler lives in Marquette, Michigan where the roar of Lake Superior, mountains of snow, and sandstone architecture inspire his writing. He has many future books in the planning.
