Shauna grew up in the small town of Farmington, Minnesota, She ran away from home at age 18 and moved to California. Her wholesome, "girl-next-door" looks landed her work posing for magazines such as Hustler and Penthouse, and soon she progressed to filming hardcore scenes for Suze Randall. These short loops brought her more work, and she adopted the professional name of Shauna Grant. Despite her beauty, she had some difficulty getting work due to her cocaine addiction and lack of "enthusiasm" during sex scenes. In 1983, she dropped out of the adult film industry after less than a year and just over 30 movies. One of her top performances can be found in "The Young Like It Hot," where the blonde beauty and brunette beauty Hyapatia Lee have sex at their best as call center girls.
Even outside of the porn business, her addiction continued to wreak havoc upon her life. Her boyfriend, a cocaine dealer named Jake Erlich, gave her a job at a leather-goods store he owned. When he was arrested on drug charges, Shauna returned to adult films.
On March 21, 1984 Miss Grant committed suicide at age twenty in Palm Springs, California by shooting herself with a .22 caliber rifle. Her death sent shock waves through the industry; some who knew her (including her parents) insisted that she had been murdered. Shauna Grant's career and death were fictionalized as the basis for a TV-Movie, called Shattered Innocence, a film that bares little resemblance to her actual life. To this day, she remains an erotic icon.
