I was so shocked and amazed when Maree Todd MSP held up my novel before the The Scottish Parliament. As an author, it's a moment I will never forget and as someone with Lyme the debate was an acknowledgment that action must be taken about Lyme disease.
Thank you to all the MSP who are speaking out about Lyme disease, to Lyme Disease UK and to all who are doing their bit to spread awareness.
Big thank you to The Nairn Bookshop for writing a review for the talk I gave! 🙏
Can’t wait for the talks that I have coming up!
Is there somewhere near you that you think might be interested in me giving a talk? If so then feel free to make any suggestions 😊.
If you haven’t all ready then it’s well worth checking out the brilliant work of Lyme Loonies work! Meaningful yet an ironic portrayal of Lyme disease. 😂👍😂.

I thought ticks feeding on animals and humans was horrible enough...never mind them feeding on each other!
Fascinating article by LiveScience.
I’ve spoken to a lot of people recently who thought that they’re safe from tick bites and Lyme disease in this cold weather we are currently having, so it’s important to remember that you and your pets can contract Lyme all year round.
Whether it's wet and windy or warm and bright, ticks and biting insects are a potential health hazard when you or your pets are enjoying the outdoors. Visit fleatickrisk.com to help prevent bites and transmission of disease in the UK.
Thank you very much Mavis, at The Nairn Bookshop, for taking the time to write a review for Finding Joy and the talk I gave in your beautiful bookshop! What a brilliant night it was with such kind people and a fantastic turn out.
On this day last week something extremely incredible had happened to me - I had woken up having celebrated my birthday for the first time in nine years! My incredible friends and family held a surprise party for me with Full Tilt Ceilidh Band.
How lucky am I to have people in my life as miraculous as all of you. Thank you to everyone for coming (and for many of you who traveled so far) and to all who have gotten me to the stage where I’m well enough to celebrate my birthday. You mean the world to me! I adored every moment of it. I’ve spent this week in bed recovering but it was 100% worth it.
If you can then you should definitely check out Stuart Duff Creations - Stuart’s work is absolutely stunning!
