It's my stop on the blog tour for Cards from Khloe's Flower Shop and I'm here to share a fun Q&A with the author, Isabella Louise Anderson, with you all. Enjoy!

Firstly, tell me a little about yourself.
I'm the author of The Right Design, Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop, and the novella, The Hollywood Setup. My short story can be found in the Christmas anthology, Merry & Bright. I live in Dallas with my husband and our cat, Lucky.
How did you first become interested in writing? 
I grew up as an avid reader, so I would often try to create my own stories. I didn't start taking it seriously until January of 2010.

Tell me about Cards from Khloe's Flower Shop.
Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop is a book about three women who are at different points in their lives, career, and romance-wise. Khloe struggles with trust issues and running her business; Connie's an ugly duckling who is a beautiful soul, and Gabby is learning if it's possible to love again after losing her husband.
How do you get inspiration? 
Reading other books, watching TV or movies, and reading newspaper articles. Also, I pretend I'm the heroine in my book and put "myself" in situations I wish I were/could've been in.
As flowers are a strong theme in the book, what's your favourite flower? 
Circus roses!
What's your writing process? 
Every book is different. With my first book, I took notes like crazy, but with Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop, I just wrote. For me, it all depends on what the story idea is.

What's the hardest thing about writing? 
Believe it or not, just doing it. You can tell as many excuses to yourself, so instead of saying that you can't, just do it.
Which authors inspire you? 
I'm honoured to know a lot of wonderful women author, but Meredith Schorr and Hilary Grossman. Whether it be for writing or in need of a good book, these are my go-to ladies.
What are your ambitions for your writing career? 
Right now, I'm a one day at a time kind of girl, so I don't know what the future holds, mainly because life is so unpredictable. In the meantime, I do plan on writing and publishing books that I hope my readers will enjoy as much as I like creating them.
What are your interests outside of writing and reading? 
Spending time with my husband, family, and friends, watching baseball (Go Rangers), and enjoying spicy Indian or Mexican food.
What are you reading at the moment? 
Write Smart, Write Happy by Cheryl St. John.
Cards from Khloe's Flower Shop is available to buy now. For more about Isabella and her books, you can follow her on Twitter.
