Tyler has been a member of the United States Coast Guard for 16 years, stationed for many years in St. Ignace, Michigan where Onyx, a black lab, is the station's official morale dog. The Adventures of Onyx picture books were inspired by journals Tyler wrote to better illustrate for his family what his job was like. 

The series provides a window for children into the world of search and rescue operations on the Great Lakes and serves as a tribute to all who have dedicated their lives to the protection of our coasts.  Just in time for Coast Guard Festival, bring your family to meet Tyler and hear him tell his stories.
