Mia Fontaine

Mia Fontaine is an author, public speaker, and creative strategist. She published her first book at twenty-four, a memoir she co-authored with her mother, Claire, called ComeBack, that chronicled her tumultuous childhood. Following its debut, she began speaking nationally about the personal and social costs of child sexual abuse and the power within all of us to transform ourselves.

Mia’s second book, Have Mother, Will Travel, focused on the changing dynamic between mother and adult daughter. Also written with Claire, it is based on a trip they took around the world in which they studied mothers and daughters across countries and cultures, including the U.S.

In 2012, Mia moved to  New York City and began a second career helping other people and companies tell their stories. She currently lives in Brooklyn and works as a creative strategist for a thriving Manhattan startup. She continues to speak and write about the long-term cost of child abuse, and is brainstorming ideas for her next book, to be written solo.
