Hello. Welcome.

I am TG Wolff, mystery writer and Civil Engineer. I have always loved puzzles. It doesn't matter if the puzzles are made of words, numbers, or pictures. I dig on "figuring it out." Becoming an engineer was a natural, because that what I do -- figure out why things are broken, figure out how to fix them.

In my day job, I am a Civil Engineer. I hold a Bachelor’s from Case Western Reserve University and a Master’s from Cleveland State University. I started in the Transportation field, designing roadways and the water systems that support them. After working nights on my Master’s degree, I began working in the water and wastewater industry, specializing in Clean Water Act compliance. Currently, I work for one of the largest self-performing General Contractors in the Midwest, helping with the projects that keep our water clean and our communities strong.

I love reading mysteries for the "figuring it out." Over ten years ago while living in Cleveland, Ohio and working on a project in Northern Kentucky, with little to fill the time along the I-71 corridor, I began create puzzles, mini “whodunits” that kept my mind alert. The  puzzles became short stories and, eventually, full length mysteries. While I am an avid reader of mysteries and thrillers, I love, in capital letters, LOVE, creating mysteries for the reader to solve and enjoy.

As a mystery writer, I create the whodunits, and then work backwards to create the story that will be read front-to-back. I’m not a cop or a lawyer. My stories aren’t police procedurals or legal thrillers. My stories are about the plot, the mystery, with a fun twist of humor that makes life entertaining. I like to make you think but give you everything you need to solve the problem.
