Susan M. Guy was born and raised in Jefferson County, Ohio. Following in the footsteps of her father, a retired Wintersville police captain, Susan served as the first female police officer on the Cross Creek Township Police Department for fifteen years, acheiveing the rank of sergeant. Since 1994, she has been employed by the State of Ohio as a correctional officer.
She is a member of the Fort Steuben Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and is the public relations director for the Tri State Writers Society. She credits the Tri State Writers Society and its president, author Karina Garrison, for asking her to write a short story on prostitution in Steubenville. The story took on a life of its own, as the urge to dig for more information took over. The result is this book, Mobsters, Madams & Murder in Steubenville, Ohio (The Story of Little Chicago).
