Sue Quigley is a soft spoken, low-key individual with a keen eye for design and a flair for the written word. She hails from Scotland in an area known as the ‘Gateway to the Highlands.’ The village in which she spent her childhood is called Doune and is dominated by a 14th century castle. She describes the village as being “way out in the heather,” the nearest big city being Stirling in Perthshire — which also has its own famous castle, once the home of Mary Queen of Scots.
