Central Ohio Technical College Welcomes Back Author, Alumna Sue Comisford

​​​​NEWARK Ohio, May 2, 2016 - Adventure, work and relaxation are typical reasons people travel. However, the decision to travel over 1,500 miles that Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) graduate and author Sue Comisford made was quite unique. 

While raising her three children in Worthington, Ohio, Comisford relocated her family to Wyoming. The move was sparked by the family's priorities significantly changing, due to learning that their eldest son, Brandon, was diagnosed with cancer. "Brandon's diagnosis and the experiences that followed changed our family's lives forever," said Comisford. Since her youth, Comisford always loved the outdoors. She sought out Wyoming as a refuge where her family could escape their fast- paced lives.

Throughout the eight years in Wyoming, Comisford owned and operated a ranch, an experience that provided her with many memories and stories that compelled her to write the novel, Ranger Creek Guest Ranch: Real Life. Real Faith.

"The journey was not always easy, our lives have been touched by the people we met along the way," Comisford says about her time there. "Our hearts are full of wonderful memories of these people and this special place known as Ranger Creek Guest Ranch."

Comisford will discuss and sign copies of her book on May 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble bookstore located in the John L. Christine Warner Center's on the shared campus of The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College.

Comisford graduated with an associate degree in business from COTC and later earned a paralegal degree from Capital University Law School. She now works for the U.S. Department of Justice and lives with her husband of 40 years on a small farm in Sunbury, Ohio. The book discussion and signing is free and open to the public.
