About the Author
Shannon Lush is an Australian best-selling author who specializes in titles that simplify (or 'demystify') tasks such as cleaning and household management.
Born in Sydney, she is an art restorer and home economist. Her break into the public scene began when she started giving stain removal advice on ABC Radio in 2004. She later compiled a number of these solutions in the form of her first book, Spotless (Co-Written with Jennifer Fleming) which was released in 2005 and became the Australian number one best-selling book of 2006. She has since released five other books in Australia, all of which have reached best-seller status. Her latest book, Stainless (Co-Written with Trent Hayes) was released in 2010 and serves as a how-to book in understanding Shannon's stain removal techniques. She has also released three overseas titles, including non-English translations of Spotless.
Shannon cemented her ecological leanings with the release of Save: Your Money, Your Time, Your Planet which was released with an accompanying item called the 'Save Wheel' which displayed the Carbon footprint of household activities and appliances in terms of the number of trees required to be planted to offset a year's worth of the activity/running time.
Shannon writes regular articles for the UK newspaper, The Times.
