Cecilia Aragon is an award-winning author, airshow pilot, and the first Latina full professor in the College of Engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle.
Her first nonfiction book, WRITERS IN THE SECRET GARDEN: Fanfiction, Youth, and New Forms of Mentoring, co-authored with Katie Davis, explores the surprising ways young people learn from each other in online fanfiction communities.
Her memoir, FLYING FREE: My Victory over Fear to Become the First Latina Pilot on the US Aerobatic Team, came out from Blackstone Publishing in 2020. Described as "exhilarating, adventurous, and thoughtful," FLYING FREE lifts readers into the skies on a woman's epic journey from fearful, bullied child to champion pilot.
