           Thomas Wolf was born, raised, and educated in the Midwest.  After graduation from Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, and a two-year stint as a VISTA volunteer on Long Island, he earned an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

            He is the co-author (with his wife, Patricia Bryan) of Midnight Assassin: a Murder in America’s Heartland (Algonquin Books 2005; University of Iowa Press 2007), a nonfiction account of a century-old Iowa murder case.  The book was widely reviewed and received a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly, which described it as a “tale that reads like a good novel.”  USA Today called it “meticulously researched and written.”

           Wolf is a frequent participant at scholarly baseball conferences and has published three essays in The Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture.  He is also a fiction writer and a two-time winner of the Doris Betts Fiction Prize.  His short story "Boundaries" was published in the 2012 issue of the North Carolina Literary Review and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

           Thomas Wolf lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
