Meet Nicholas Aragon, the passionate author of the Curly Crow children's book series. But Nicholas' story is more than just about creating fantastic children's books. It's a heartwarming tale of love, perseverance, and honoring the legacy of his mother, Barbara Keady. As a child, Nicholas was an avid reader, and his mother Barbara fueled his love for books by taking him to the library twice a week. But it wasn't until he became an adult that he fully realized the impact of reading on his life. He credits his success as an adult to the love of books that his mother instilled in him at a young age.
Barbara was also a teacher and had a dream of writing books for children. Despite battling brain cancer, she persevered and wrote two children's books before passing away in 2017. Nicholas was determined to carry on his mother's legacy and honor her by publishing her books. He learned how to self-publish, formatted and published the two books on Amazon, and Curly Crow was born.
But Nicholas didn't stop there. He fell in love with the process of publishing books and decided to build upon the Curly Crow character his mother had created. He gave the character a new look and started writing his own stories about her. Nicholas hired an illustrator and began publishing his own Curly Crow children's books. He has now published several books with matching coloring books and made Curly Crow a business, with a website where he sells his books and uses his blog to support parents and help kids develop a love for reading.
