I'm Tycho Dwelis, an award-winning author and illustrator.

I'm currently best known for my book series, the Braidy von Althuis books! The Braidy von Althuis books are a five-book series intended for ages 8 - 11, but can be enjoyed by anyone. If you like Harry Potter, The Addams Family, and genuine, heart-warming stories, these books are for you.

This series talks about many important kids' issues including bullying, guilt, accountability, grief, lying, self-esteem, and being true to yourself. They are award-winning books with 5 Stars from Reader's Favorite, and have been #1 on Amazon in three categories.

I'm also working on a short story anthology called Die Standing Up, a Weird West series that follows Modestus McDoon, Bandit King. It's the 1870s, and things are weird in the Wild West. Follow Modestus McDoon, wannabe Bandit King, as he tears across the desert, stealing money, fighting phantoms, and ultimately earning the title of Bandit King of the West.

Die Standing Up is a collection of short stories intended for adult readers.

I hope you enjoy my work, and it's good to meet you!
