The book is titled, “Of A Man.”

It tells the story of a young father juggling the challenges of running his own business and raising a family.

Khaliah admits she was a little scared at first, but now, she says it is been an amazing experience and is encouraging other young artists to do the same.

“I did this but it just won't be me, I want more people to put their work out there,” she said. “If you write, if you sing or you act, I want you to put it out there."

Khaliah published “Of A Man” herself through a website called Watt Pad.

She describes it as social media for people who love to read, like her.
