Reader, writer, blogger at www.readability.com.au
Fleur Morrison is a former journalist, public relations practitioner and radio producer who is now a stay-at-home mother of three. She tries to write and read whenever she gets a chance... which isn't often enough these days. <br> <br> She has established <a href="http://www.readability.com.au" rel="nofollow"> www.readability.com.au</a> to throw around some ideas about books and reading, and to try to put a stop to her habit of starting a book and only realising 20 pages in that she's already read it. <br> <br> Fleur also runs copywriting and editing business <a href="http://www.wordstore.com.au" rel="nofollow">www.wordstore.com.au</a> to help businesses and organisations communicate better.
