“Khyli’s Tangled World” series


Khyli’s Tangled World follows an aspiring actress as she navigates through life balancing her family drama, father’s legacy and career. 


“Nothing in life ever turns out the way you’ve planned it”


Already facing some challenging situations, Khyli, must deal with the circumstances and conditions that have arisen after her father’s death. In the midst of all this drama, Khyli has to tell those around her some bad news that could potentially bring her already tangled world crashing down.


This is such a beautiful story. Three sisters, each going through their own period of growth… for VERY different reasons. 


One… For Love

One… For Closure

One… For Growth


Although the sisters are dealing with the loss of their father and his legacy, each of them are experiencing their own growth in different ways. All three of their paths collide over a single issue, but the common denominator lies with whether or not to keep the Children’s Home that he founded.
