Susan Laidlaw was an executive in the fashion industry in New York City when she met her husband to be, Will, completely by chance. Two years later they married and Susan relocated to the Berkshires to begin a whole new chapter in her life, leaving career, friends and family behind.
While Susan continues to keep a hand in the fashion world and consults for several clients in the U.S. and abroad, she has added “writer” to her list of interests and accomplishments.
Last November Susan participated in the internet- based creative writing project, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and wrote the first draft of her novel, “Finding Will”, a romantic story of a young widow’s journey through grief and self -discovery that transforms her life.
Susan’s fashion and design sensibilities are still hard at work and are now focused on a complete transformation of two antique houses in the Berkshires. Susan has also stated a blog, redhousewhitecottage.com to capture the process.
