All packed and ready for my last event of 2019! So excited to already have bookings for next year. Is there anywhere near you that might be interested in me coming to give a talk…if so feel free to get in touch.
Had a great afternoon speaking to MFR who will be airing the interview about Lyme disease and the article below either tonight or tomorrow morning…so if you’re out and about, tune in and let me know if you hear me.
I’m so please by this write up of the talk I gave for the U3A. Thanks so much for such a great review, for raising awareness and informing people on what to do if they get a tick bite.
I’ve done a few events for the WEA and U3A now and everyone stands out in my mind as something special. I feel very lucky to have been asked to speak to this packed out room of remarkable people and to have so many of you come up to me at the to share your stories – your courage encourages me.
I feel very fortunate to have been asked to be a guest speaker for the launch of the Lyme Disease App. It was really interesting listening to the experts on how the App will work, the complexity of making the app and the and the educational purposes it will have.

Oban High School – Kerri Stewart (PT English and Literacy). Presentation and creative writing workshop
Thank you so much for making the events yesterday such a great success. The students have been unanimous in their praise. The talks and the workshop were all really enjoyable and interesting. It has such a fantastic impact on learning to have people come in and talk about their own experiences
Oban High School – Aimee McIntosh (English Department).
Morven’s talk about Lyme disease and her experience with it was interesting and informative. Many of our s4 pupils were aware of ticks and had experienced tick bites but knew little about the disease. Morven’s reading of the voice of Lyme disease really gave the pupils an insight to living with the disease. They thoroughly enjoyed the talk, especially the quick quiz at the end which really showed how much they had learned.
Morven’s creative writing workshop quickly focused our advanced highers on the task of creating a character. Her resources were great stimulus for some really imaginative characters which could then be developed into short stories. The group thoroughly enjoyed their workshop and produced some very detailed characters.
I really enjoy getting to write articles for various magazines and this one is particularly close to my heart.
I’m back for the third year running and definitely my most busy year yet. I just adore this festival and look at who I had joined me…the cast of Toy Story! On my last night, I even got to sneak away to watch some of the main acts.
This have been such a wonderful event. I’ve really enjoyed getting to people to you all.
What an incredible experience. I’m so pleased to have had the chance to do this for part of Lyme disease awareness month. Absolutely terrifying but so amazing! Thank you so much to everyone who donated – your support means so much to me.
