Susan M. Guy was born and raised in Jefferson County, Ohio. Following in the footsteps of her father, retired Wintersville Police Captain, Robert “Red” Nottingham, Susan was a Cross Creek Township Police Officer for fifteen years, earning the rank of sergeant. Since 1994, she has been employed by the state of Ohio as a correctional officer.
Susan’s hobbies include genealogy and writing, which she often combines to tell the stories of persons long passed, believing that everyone deserves to be remembered. She was inducted into the Fort Steuben Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution in 2009, and serves as public relations director for the Tri State Writers Society, a local writers’ group. She credits the group and its founder, local author, Karina Garrison, for asking her to write a short story assignment on prostitution in Steubenville’s Water Street red-light district. The story took on a life of its own as the urge to dig for more and more information took over. The result became this book, Mobsters, Madams and Murder in Steubenville, Ohio, (The Story of Little Chicago).
