Erin Shaw is a freelance writer and performer, who naïvely moved to New York City in the midst of the 2008 recession with dreams of gracing the Broadway stage. Once there, she learned this was a task, far more difficult than she anticipated, and so she started a princess party company to help her stay on her feet, while she worked as a nanny. While she never made it to Broadway, her company became very successful and she wrote a novel "Party Girl - A Modern Fairy Tale" loosely based on her wacky adventures doing said parties. Erin now resides in the great city of New Orleans, where she continues to write, teach and perform. She has since retired from doing princess parties.
