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.

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 Lance and Tristan be able to find their parents and home, and resurrect their very lives? Or will they be forever trapped in a time-warp—the age of King Arthur, filled with knights, fairies, magical beasts, and sinister sorceresses?
Arthur’s Bosom brings the Children of Arthur series to a stunning conclusion after offering a wholly new and different world-view of mythology, history, mystery, and what is still possible for the human race.
Magic existed in the thought of England’s green hills, in the names of Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and the Tower of London. It was one of the few lands still ruled by a monarch, perhaps a land where fairy tales might still come true. Maybe even a place where he might at last find a father.
All his life, Adam Morgan has sought his true identity and the father he never knew. When multiple coincidences lead him to England, he will not only find his father, but mutual love with a woman he can never have, and a family legacy he never imagined possible. Among England’s green hills and crumbling castles, Adam’s intuition awakens, and when a mysterious stranger appears with a tale of Britain’s past, Adam discovers forces may be at work to bring about the return of a king.
When iron ore is discovered in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in the 1840s, entrepreneur Gerald Henning and his beautiful socialite wife Clara travel from Boston to the little village of Marquette on the shores of Lake Superior. They and their companions, Irish and German immigrants, French Canadians, and fellow New Englanders dream of a great metropolis at the center of the iron ore industry. Despite blizzards and near starvation, devastating fires and financial hardships, these iron pioneers persevere until their wilderness village first becomes integral to the Union cause in the Civil War and then a prosperous modern city.
