Kimber Fountain - Galveston Author and Speaker

About Kimber Fountain:

Kimber is a professional speaker who holds history and book lectures all across the Houston area, and she has recently launched the Red Light District Tours of Galveston, an historical walking tour inspired by her book.

Kimber is a native of the Texas Gulf Coast and longtime resident of Galveston Island.

After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre and Dance from the University of Texas at Austin, Kimber lived in Chicago for several years while working as an actor and commercial voice-over artist.

Upon returning to Texas and making her home in Galveston, she discovered a love for the rich history of the island.

Her professional literary career began as a writer for a local Galveston publication called "The Island Guide", after which she went on to serve as the Editor-in-Chief and Feature Writer of "Galveston Monthly" magazine for four years.

Kimber has authored two books on Galveston history, the "Galveston Seawall Chronicles" (The History Press, 2017) and "Galveston’s Red Light District: A History of the Line" (The History Press, 2018), and she is currently working on her third—an authorized biography of Galveston's Maceo family—slated for release in late 2019.

Books are available for purchase from Arcadia Publishing.

She also serves as chair of the Arts & Historic Preservation Advisory Board to Galveston’s City Council and is occasionally seen on stage at the Island East-End Theatre Company.
