Good Morning From Northern Ireland

Good Morning from Northern Ireland. I hope everyone is well. I’ve been neglecting my blogging duties of late as a new position at work is taking up most of my spare time. It’s an exciting opportunity and I’m relishing the challenge. It’s allowing me to do what I enjoy the most…write. I’d like to think I’m quite good at it as well and I hope my bosses are rewarded for their faith at me. The new post came at exactly the right time for me.

The downside is that it’s dragging me away from my blogging and creative writing. My third full-length novel is currently with beta readers. When I’ve received their feedback I’ll forward the manuscript to my editor. I’m hoping the book will be released later in 2021. I’m excited about the next instalment in the ‘Kirkwood Scott Chronicles’ and the other book projects I have in the pipeline.

It’s finding the time to write them all, there really aren’t enough hours in the day. And, as Northern Ireland emerges from a six-month lockdown it also means family life is getting busier again. Rugby matches, gym sessions and football training all require taxiing duties to start up again. I can’t complain, though. The gradual return to normality is most welcome. The success of the vaccination programme is clear for all to see.

Here endeth this little update for you all. The blog recently celebrated its 4th birthday and I’m keen to keep it frequent and relevant. If any of you are on Twitter then you can find me at @stephenRB4. Or check out my books on your local Amazon site. They are also free to read on Kindle Unlimited if you’re a subscriber. I’ll sign off now and hope everyone is keeping safe and well.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. This was a bright addition to my quick morning coffee break! Glad to hear you are finding yourself well-suited to your new position. We are about the same age and changing jobs at this stage of life can be a bit daunting. I always wondered before, when in the world you had so much time to write as I too have a blog and a full-time job and a sometimes pastor position but no children, and I have a hard time finding the time to write. (Boy was that a run-on sentence!!) Kudos to you for what you do manage to put to paper/screen/what have you. It is always a pleasure to read your thoughts! Take good care.

  2. It’s so good to see you! And how wonderful about the job! I understand how all the activities with things opening up, and responsibilities with the job, can take up tons of time! I’m so happy for you and your family. How fortunate for your employer to have you at the helm for writing! Take care, Stephen! Stay blessed! 💛

      1. I’m doing well! Thank you! It’s busy times as I’ve added some wonderful additions to my time {working with special education adults}. My first rhyming children’s book is continuing to be edited as my illustrator is working on it too. The weather has its ups and downs ~all over the world 🌎! But I’m holding on to faith and living as much in the present as possible! Keep up the great work my friend!


  3. Good day from Colorado. I found your blog today and enjoy a good story so I’ve added your Kirkwood Scott Chronicles to my reading list. The Goodreads reviews are great, I’m looking forward. Cheers and enjoy getting out and about.
