Biography & Autobiography

 

Author: Tyler R. Tichelaar

Today, Charles Kawbawgam, “The Last Chief of the Chippewa,” is a legend in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for allegedly living to age 103 (1799-1902). But few know anything else about him beyond his being buried in Marquette’s beautiful Presque Isle Park.Kawbawgam witnessed a period of intense industrial growth and unheralded change for Native Americans. Growing up at Sault Sainte Marie when the area was still claimed by Great Britain, his first memory was of armed Americans coercing his people into ceding their lands to the United States Government. As the son, nephew, stepson, and later son-in-law of Ojibwa chiefs, and in time a chief in his own right, Kawbawgam learned early that he would have to walk a fine line to keep the peace for his people. After temporarily migrating to Canada with other Ojibwa in disagreement with the American government, he returned to the Sault where he was recruited to help found the town of Marquette.

Kawbawgam would preside over an Ojibwa and métis community that helped ensure the white settlers’ survival during Marquette’s early years, only to be pushed to the city’s margins as Marquette grew and prospered. Yet the admiration and affection Kawbawgam won from whites as well as the Ojibwa maintained peace and created a legacy that lives on today. Kawbawgam is a story of cross-cultural friendships, survival amid upheaval, and the importance of community and heritage.

Family Issues

 

Author: Deborah K. Frontiera

It’s a nightmare’s nightmare when Child Protective Services takes a child from a family with little evidence, while other kids are abused to death. No one ever said the job of a social worker was easy, which is why there is such a problem nation-wide for children who need to be rescued from abuse, families who only need help in a crisis but should keep their children, and innocent families who are persecuted, sometimes into bankruptcy. Not a “happy” read, but an important one, this book brings all these things to light and offers some solutions for improving the child protective agencies. Frontiera’s information comes from multiple perspectives: parent, grandparent, concerned citizen, and public school teacher.

Historical Fiction

Author: Susan M. Puska

Seasons of the Birch is a story of perseverance, sacrifice, and resilience. Susan Puska brings realism and heart to a novel that showcases the untold stories of women, minorities, and marginalized men who served their country yet seldom get the recognition they deserve.Ruth Amundsen grew up poor in Michigan’s rural Upper Peninsula during the 1920s and 1930s. As she ventured beyond the village of Big Bay, she left her real home – the shores of Lake Superior. After nursing training, she joined the U.S. Army Nurse Corps, serving during the last year of World War II in the war-torn Philippines.

When she returns to post-war America, she finds her independence, sense of contribution, and hard-earned status as a war nurse of little value to a country seeking to get back to an outdated normal, whatever the cost. Her search for tranquility and family is tested as she returns to her beloved Northwoods. Can she adapt to the harsh realities she exchanged for returning north? Will she break from its icy weight or find her resilience like the birch tree after a long winter?

Matthew Newman, reporter for the New York Empire Sentinel, should have seen his assignment to cover the trial as the opportunity of a lifetime. But Matthew is also a native of Marquette, Michigan, where the trial will be held. Matthew left Marquette long ago and does not relish returning to deal with a distant sister and her drunkard husband, or to attend his niece’s wedding, set for the weekend after the trial begins.The situation becomes more difficult for Matthew when he learns that Roosevelt is staying at the home of George Shiras. Once close friends, Matthew and George have not seen each other in years after a serious blow caused Matthew to leave Marquette. Now he is uncertain how to deal with George’s overtures of friendship.

As one witness after another, from navy admirals and secretaries to bodyguards and butlers, are called forth to testify in Roosevelt’s defense, Matthew must call forth his past and come to terms with it.

Novelist Tyler Tichelaar, a native of Marquette, Michigan, goes where biographers have never gone in detailing not only the significance of the often-ignored Roosevelt libel trial, but also how Roosevelt’s presence stirred Upper Michigan into a frenzy of excitement. This is the tale of a big man in a small town, how that small town responded, and how we all influence one another, often in unseen ways.

Join us for epic adventures in the U.P. on land and lakes!

Pirates, thieves, shipwrecks, sexy women, lost gold, and adventures on the Lake Superior frontier await you! In this book, you’ll sail on a ship full of gold, outwit deadly shapeshifters, battle frontier outlaws and even meet the mysterious agent that Andrew Jackson called ”the meanest man” he ever knew.

His intimacy of the region, the history and its culture gives this book a feel of authenticity that is rarely seen.

Encompassing some 130 years in Ironwood’s history, Compassion, Michigan illuminates characters struggling to adapt to their circumstances starting in the present day, with its subsequent stories rolling back in time to when Ironwood was first founded. What does it mean to live in a small town–so laden with its glory day reminiscences–against the stark economic realities of today? Doesn’t history matter anymore? Could we still have compassion for others who don’t share our views?

A Deaf woman, born into a large, hearing family, looks back on her turbulent relationship with her younger, hearing sister. A gas station clerk reflects on Stella Draper, the woman who ran an ice cream parlor only to kill herself on her 33rd birthday. A devout mother has a crisis of faith when her son admits that their priest molested him. A bank teller, married to a soldier convicted of treason during the Korean War, gradually falls for a cafeteria worker. A young transgender man, with a knack for tailoring menswear, escapes his wealthy Detroit background for a chance to live truly as himself in Ironwood. When a handsome single man is attracted to her, a popular schoolteacher enters into a marriage of convenience only to wonder if she’s made the right decision.

RAYMOND LUCZAK, a Yooper native, is the author and editor of 24 books, including Flannelwood. He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

”These are stories of extremely real women, mostly disappointed by life, living meagerly in a depleted town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Sound depressing? Not at all. Luczak has tracked their hopes, their repressed desires, and their ambitions with the elegance and precision of one of those silhouette artists who used to snip out perfect likenesses in black paper; people ’comforted by the familiarity of loneliness,’ as he writes.”
–EDMUND WHITE, author of A Saint in Texas

“Filled with grief and hope, bitterness and tenderness, Raymond’s collection of short stories exudes compassion for its characters and their environs. With a confident eye to detail, and knowledge of the pulse of the place, he brings the reader into the quiet lives the people in the stories appear to be living only to reveal internal tensions around sexuality, belonging, and family. A pleasurable, nuanced portrayal of life in a small town by a talented writer with an understanding of the humanity we all share.”
–CHRIS STARK, author of Nickels: A Tale of Dissociation

“Raymond Luczak’s Compassion, Michigan is a modern-day version of Winesburg, Ohio that proves William Faulkner’s statement that ‘The past is never dead. It is not even over.’ These stories describe a small town over the course of the twentieth century, experiencing change, being haunted by its past. Its residents live their lives of quiet desperation as queer, confused, disempowered or outcast members of their community. They seek love, sex, purpose, and the freedom to be themselves. In short, they are human, and they have much to teach us.”

An irritating best friend gained during a childhood spent in a Catholic orphanage, a father who became a Communist and went to Russia in the 1930s, and 3:00 a.m. visits to The Pancake House. Such is the life of Lyla Hopewell. But in the summer of 2005, when her old boyfriend Bill has a heart attack, her best friend Bel really gets on her nerves, and Finn Fest comes to Marquette, things will change for Lyla.
Joined by a cast of Marquette’s most eccentric and endearing characters—the foul-mouthed fourteen-year-old Josie; ninety-three-year-old Eleanor, still trying to fix her little brother’s love life; ex-boyfriend and blunt womanizer, Bill; blind Mary Mitchell and her ornery sister Florence; the sweet but romantically confused cabdriver Sybil; and many, many more—Lyla recounts her life-story as she comes to terms with her past. After years of feeling unloved, neglected, frustrated, and unfulfilled, can Lyla finally find her own best place?

Life would be pleasant, if not for two village bullies. Kanti bets her prized spear against Ahanu’s bear-claw necklace in a canoe race. To win, Chogan and Kanti will need help from Mishosha (the Magician of the Lake).

During a full moon the wailing of a thousand souls can be heard within Windigo’s mournful roar. If Chogan and Kanti are not careful, their voices will be added to that number.

To help her young grandson Billy learn the importance of believing in yourself, a Michigan grandmother tells him a fantastical story about a rabbit named Yoopie. Yoopie is relentlessly made fun of by his neighbors for keeping a “useless strange fuzzy red thing” (a mitten) that he finds in the meadow. Later, when the weather turns horrifically cold for the first time ever and Yoopies’s strange find becomes extremely important, his neighbors become apologetic. In order to apologize for their meanness, they decide to honor him by building a gigantic rabbit and mitten (the future State of Michigan!) in “The Big Water.” In the end, Yoopie and his painfully shy female counterpart Trolletta learn the importance of believing in yourself – as does Billy.

Author: Tyler R. Tichelaar

Founded as a harbor town to ship iron ore from the nearby mines, Marquette became known as the Queen City of the North for its thriving industries, beautiful buildings, and being the largest city in Upper Michigan. But is Marquette also the Queen of Lake Superior’s Haunted Cities?Seventh-generation Marquette resident Tyler Tichelaar has spent years collecting tales of the many ghosts who haunt the cemeteries, churches, businesses, hotels, and homes of Marquette. Now, separating fact from fiction, he delves into the historical record to determine which stories may be true and which are just the fancies of frightened minds.

The wicked nun who killed an orphan boy
The librarian mourning her sailor lover
The drowned sailors who climb out of Lake Superior at night
The glowing lantern of the decapitated train conductor
The mailman who gave his life for the U.S. mail
More ghostly ladies in floor-length white gowns than any haunted city should have
Haunted Marquette opens up a fourth dimension view of the Queen City’s past and reveals that much of it is still present.

Romance

 

Author: Jen Brady

She dreams of wearing a crown.
He’s more pauper than prince.
Can their love story have a happy ending?

Brooks: 

You couldn’t pay me enough to tutor my high school’s biggest goof-off. Not even the obscene amount of money his grandfather’s offering me can make it enticing . . . until I find out this job takes place next door to my longtime crush.

Megan’s sweet, fun, and beautiful—basically my dream girl. I know I’m not good enough for her, but I can’t seem to stay away, especially now that my life happens next door to hers. Is it crazy to hope that a popular cheerleader who always looks like she’s stepped off the pages of a fashion magazine could fall for a quiet, nerdy guy like me?

Megan:

It’s exhausting keeping up with the in-crowd at school. I must be doing okay, though, (even shopping the thrift stores on a baby-sitting budget) since I’m on prom court and invited to my dream sorority’s Greek preview day.

I’m so close to having everything I’ve always dreamed of. In my social circle, you’re expected to look flawless, act a certain way, and, especially, date the “right” guy. But what if the smart, sweet, serious loner I’ve fallen for isn’t “prom king worthy?”

Brooks definitely isn’t someone my friends would approve of, even if does treat me like a princess. Is there a way to date him and keep up the perfect image I’ve been building for the past four years?

Falling for the Tutor is a fun social class YA sweet romance. If you like quirky characters, sweet kisses, and happily ever afters, you’ll love The March Sisters Sweet Romance series.

She’s a YouTube comedy sensation.

When they’re forced to work together, what sort of sparks will fly?

Joanna:

Co-hosting a hilarious YouTube channel with my best friend is great and all, but winning the “Lights, Camera, Vance!” competition is what will turn my dreams of attending film school in New York into reality.

I’m soooo close to putting the final touches on the entry I’ve poured my heart and soul into when the unthinkable happens—Bratty McBratface (AKA my youngest sister) destroys my movie, leaving me with exactly one option: work on someone else’s dull-as-dirt documentary . . .

Which wouldn’t be so bad if that someone didn’t happen to be the cute-but-infuriating guy I’ve already had a run-in with at the mall.

Rick:

My biggest YouTuber pet peeves? Ridiculous click-bait titles and useless content. Out-of-control bath bombs? Not my thing. Disgusting food challenges? Yuck!

I’m going to change the world with my films . . .

At least I would if I had a working camera. Now my only chance is to borrow equipment—and take (unwanted) creative input—from our local area sellout. Uh, I mean our local YouTube celebrity.

She may have gorgeous, silky hair and beautiful eyes a guy can get lost in, but she’s also the last person I’d want to be stuck working with.

So why have our arguments over everything from camera angles to music montages started to feel more like flirting than fighting?

Subscribing to the Enemy is a fun enemies-to-lovers YA sweet romance. If you like quirky characters, sweet kisses, and happily ever afters, you’ll love this first book in The March Sisters Sweet Romance series.

The Children of Arthur, Book Five
Author: Tyler Tichelaar

Several years after the showdown with Lilith, the Delaney twins, Lance and Tristan, are young men intent on finding their place in the world while wondering whether their greatest adventures already lie behind them.

But when an earth-shattering cataclysmic event occurs, the twins find themselves having to piece back together a world that only slightly resembles the world they knew, a world that seems more fantasy than reality in its strangeness and yet its familiarity.

Will they be able to find their parents and home, and resurrect their very lives? Or will they find themselves forever trapped in a time-warp in an Arthurian world that until now they have only read about.

With Arthur\’s Bosom, the Children of Arthur series comes to a stunning conclusion after offering a wholly new and different world-view of mythology, human history, and what is still possible for the future of the human race.

The Children of Arthur, Book Four
Author: Tyler Tichelaar

Eighteen years have passed since Adam and Anne Delaney’s twin sons were kidnapped, ostensibly by one who wished them well. Now, after a string of useless clues and years of doubting their own sanity, the couple arrive in Istanbul where they have been told they will find the answers they seek…and hopefully the infant boys who—if even alive—would now be grown men and strangers to them.

Lilith’s Love, the fourth volume in Tyler R. Tichelaar’s revolutionary historical fantasy series The Children of Arthur, brings together diverse legends to create a new human history that both surprises and reveals how powerful the imagination can be. With an impressive cast of historical and legendary characters that includes Merlin, Emperor Constantine XI, the Wandering Jew, Dracula, and Lilith herself, this tale takes readers from the Fall of Constantinople to a New World Order in the twenty-first century, rewriting a past we thought we knew to create a future far more fabulous than we ever dreamed.

When their children are kidnapped from the family castle, Adam and Anne Delaney race back to England from their vacation in France. Assuming their children will be held for ransom, the couple are ill-prepared for the truth about who has kidnapped their boys. Secrets of both of their families will be revealed as a result.

When the great wizard Merlin mysteriously reappears in their lives, Adam and Anne hope he can help with the investigation. But Merlin is more concerned with sharing yet another story about one of their ancestors, this time Ogier the Dane, a great knight of Charlemagne’s court, a pagan among Christians who went on a fabulous journey to the East. Ogier’s story will enlighten Adam and Anne about an ancient evil soon to be unleashed on the world—and they may be the only ones capable of defeating it.

Ogier’s Prayer, the third volume of Tyler R. Tichelaar’s Children of Arthur series, will take readers on a magic carpet ride reminiscent of the Arabian Nights as Tichelaar weaves stories within stories in a manner to rival Scheherazade herself.

The grandson of the first Henry Roach-Dairier takes up the torch of writing the ants’ past, how enslavement of one colony brought the colonies together. Two generations after The Re-Creation of Roacheria, Henry Roach-Dairier II becomes fascinated by his grandfather’s telling of how the ant colonies came together into one super colony. In researching facts going back 300 years/season cycles, he discovers there is so much more to those times than either ants or roaches acknowledge, that his own life may be in danger. The author’s new technique of going back and forth in time–from brutal take-over of one colony by roaches, to Henry’s present–is captivating but easy to follow as each scene change is labeled with time and place. It is well liked by middle and high school students and adults who like fantasy.

Featuring more than 130 color photos of the U.P.’s most beautiful, historic, and natural locations!

I’ve spent many years exploring the wilderness of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (U.P.), and one thing has become apparent: no matter what part in which you find yourself, fascinating sights are around every corner. There are parks, wilderness areas and museums. There are ghost towns and places named after legends. There are trails to be walked and waterways to be paddled. In the U.P., life is meant to be lived to the fullest. In this book, I’ve listed 40 destinations from every corner of the U.P. that have places of interest. Some reflect rich history, while others highlight the natural wonders that abound. So, join in the adventures. The Upper Peninsula is an open book–the one that’s in your hand.

Winner of the 2020 State History Award from the Historical Society of Michigan

”Without a doubt, Mikel Classen’s Points North needs to be in every library, gift shop and quality bookstore throughout the country–particularly those located in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. Not only does Classen bring alive the U.P. through his polished words, his masterful use of color photography also makes this book absolutely beautiful. Points North will long stand as a tremendous tribute to one of the most remarkable parts of our country.” –Michael Carrier, author, Murder on Sugar Island

”Mikel Classen\\’s love for Michigan’s Upper Peninsula shines from every page in Points North, a fascinating insider’s guidebook to the exceptional beauty and history of Michigan’s far north. Whether you’re still in the planning stages of your trip, or you’re looking back fondly on the memories you created-even if you wish merely to enjoy a virtual tour of the Upper Peninsula’s natural wonders from the comfort of your armchair, you need this book.” –Karen Dionne, author of the international bestseller, The Marsh King’s Daughter

”Many of the places in Points North may sound familiar, but Classen has spent time exploring them all, finding out the wonders others drive by and miss. And some of them may baffle you as much as they did me: the UP has a WWII glider museum? Classen has scoured every inch of the UP, visiting every campground, ghost town, lighthouse, waterfall, and beach that you may have never heard of. This book is full of surprises for even the most knowledgeable visitors to the UP. And if you’re like me, you’ll find yourself marking up the pages, making notes of places you have to visit next time you’re up north.” –Steve Lehto, author of Death’s Door: The Truth Behind the Strike of 1913 and the Italian Hall Disaster and Michigan’s Columbus: The Life of Douglass Houghton

”Until I read this book, I had not realized the large number of hidden treasures that the U.P. has. More than just an interesting history, this book is a descriptive roadmap to these treasures. Points North can be used as a guide to an adventure you would never have known about on your own. The pictures and place descriptions here are fantastic! These hidden locations have suddenly become easy to find with this book. I recommend it highly.” –Bob Hruska, author of Humorous Hunting, Fishing, and Camping in the U.P. and Canada

”Unlike a typical travel guide, a two- to four-page essay is devoted to each site. The author’s love for the U.P. is obvious on every page. Whether a museum, a state park, or a 17,000-acre wilderness area Classen’s descriptions are vibrant, enticing, and thorough. This sparkling collection of essays makes for great reading. Color photographs, most of which were taken by the author, complement the essays” — Tom Powers, Michigan in Books

Author: Tyler R. Tichelaar

Did you know King Arthur had many other children besides Mordred? Depending on which version of the legend you read, he had both sons and daughters, some of whom even survived him. From the ancient tale of Gwydre, the son who was gored to death by a boar, to Scottish traditions of Mordred as a beloved king, Tyler R. Tichelaar has studied all the references to King Arthur’s children to show how they shed light upon a legend that has intrigued us for fifteen centuries.

King Arthur’s Children: A Study in Fiction and Tradition is the first full-length analysis of every known treatment of King Arthur’s children, from Welsh legends and French romances, to Scottish genealogies and modern novels by such authors as Parke Godwin, Stephen Lawhead, Debra Kemp, and Elizabeth Wein. King Arthur’s Children explores an often overlooked theme in Arthurian literature and reveals King Arthur’s bloodline may still exist today.

From the horrors of sixteenth century Italian castles to twenty-first century plagues, from the French Revolution to the liberation of Libya, Tyler R. Tichelaar takes readers on far more than a journey through literary history. The Gothic Wanderer is an exploration of man’s deepest fears, his efforts to rise above them for the last two centuries, and how he may be on the brink finally of succeeding. Whether it’s seeking immortal life, the fabulous philosopher’s stone that will change lead into gold, or human blood as a vampire, or coping with more common “transgressions” like being a woman in a patriarchal society, being a Jew in a Christian land, or simply being addicted to gambling, the Gothic wanderer’s journey toward damnation or redemption is never dull and always enlightening.Tichelaar examines the figure of the Gothic wanderer in such well-known Gothic novels as The Mysteries of Udolpho, Frankenstein, and Dracula, as well as lesser known works like Fanny Burney’s The Wanderer, Mary Shelley’s The Last Man, and Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s Zanoni. He also finds surprising Gothic elements in classics like Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities and Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan of the Apes. From Matthew Lewis’ The Monk to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight, Tichelaar explores a literary tradition whose characters reflect our greatest fears and deepest hopes. Readers will find here the revelation that not only are we all Gothic wanderers—but we are so only by our own choosing.

Seasons of the Birch is a story of perseverance, sacrifice, and resilience. Susan Puska brings realism and heart to a novel that showcases the untold stories of women, minorities, and marginalized men who served their country yet seldom get the recognition they deserve.Ruth Amundsen grew up poor in Michigan’s rural Upper Peninsula during the 1920s and 1930s. As she ventured beyond the village of Big Bay, she left her real home – the shores of Lake Superior. After nursing training, she joined the U.S. Army Nurse Corps, serving during the last year of World War II in the war-torn Philippines.

When she returns to post-war America, she finds her independence, sense of contribution, and hard-earned status as a war nurse of little value to a country seeking to get back to an outdated normal, whatever the cost. Her search for tranquility and family is tested as she returns to her beloved Northwoods. Can she adapt to the harsh realities she exchanged for returning north? Will she break from its icy weight or find her resilience like the birch tree after a long winter?
