About the author
Born and raised in Jefferson County, Ohio, Susan M. Guy served as a police officer for fifteen years on the Cross Creek Township Police Department, having followed in the footsteps of her police captain father. She achieved the rank of sergeant. Ms. Guy is currently in her 26th year as a corrections officer for the state of Ohio. Her mother’s family has been in Jefferson County since before 1815. Her inquisitiveness into her family’s past turned into a love of genealogy and local history. Her hobby led her to join a writing class at the local college, which turned into a writers’ group, made up of members of that writing class. One thing led to another and her first book, Mobsters, Madams & Murder in Steubenville, Ohio was born. Published by Arcadia Publishing/History Press, the book was met with resounding success. Her second endeavor, The Moonlight Mill Murders of Steubenville, Ohio promises to keep the momentum going.
