Antoinette van Heugten

A former international trial lawyer, Antoinette van Heugten’s first novel, Saving Max  is based on her real life experience as the mother of two autistic children. Antoinette knows first-hand the struggles and triumphs of living with autism, and has always been an advocate for her children in a world where few people understood their disorder. She is an avid follower of the Autism Society of America, Talk Autism, Autism Speaks, the National Autism Association and Moms Fighting Autism, and has worked with parents who have recently received a diagnosis of autism for their children.

Antoinette received both her undergraduate degree and law degree from the University of Texas in Austin, Texas. During her 15-year career as a trial lawyer, she practiced all over the world, in locations such as Scandinavia, Germany and the Netherlands to Houston, her hometown. Antoinette resides in Fredericksburg, Texas, with her husband, a former prominent oil and gas lawyer.
