About the author
Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Khalil A found himself wildly enthused by a number of activities such as running track, being a member of his high school's marching band, and going to nature camps before all of his passion settled on writing both fiction and poetry. Legally blind due to congenital glaucoma, Khalil A does not view his disability as an obstacle, but prefers to regard this as a blessing; in fact, Khalil A attributes being legally blind to his love of writing vibrant descriptions across every page. Khalil A strives to use his vivid imagination and his deft wielding of words to create a more beautiful world for all. Readers can undoubtedly expect more works of art from Khalil A in the very near future as he pushes all limits of his creativity to their extremes.
