Shirley Ford

Author Shirley Fordabout this book: Memor Esto appears on the McPhail clan badge. It's English meaning is Be Mindful (of thine enemies). I discovered this badge whilst carrying out research for my first novel - Every Why. I wanted to write a sequel, I felt there was enough mileage in a further book about the McPhail family, so Be Mindful was the obvious choice for the title.

I have been reading up on book covers, and was not happy with the original cover for Every Why, I felt it gave out a mixed message.I also wanted a 'brand' for both books, so an artist I know painted the pictures, and the covers have been produced from the paintings.

Women are the primary readers of this book. I had already done research for the first book, so there was less to do for Be Mindful, but research on hotels for the honeymoon took me to some interesting places. I have changed the names slightly, but the original hotels are all now places to stay on my 'wish list'!

When you have a beginning and an end for your novel, it is quite difficult to keep up the momentum in the middle and keep it interesting for the readers.

I would like to point out that there is romance in the book, but definitely no sex! That is not the sort of book I write. There are plenty of other authors writing about that subject. Be Mindful is an easy read, ideal for lying on the beach, or at bedtime.
