Hi, I'm Rashid Ahmed and I've been a marketing professional the last seventeen years, focusing on digital marketing in the last eight. Having dived head-first into the blistering pace of corporate existence soon after post-grad studies, I've desired to pursue a career in writing science fiction; something I've put on the back-burner far too long. So, I've taken the leap. To get going and hold my own while I write and get the first few books self published, I'm asking for your help. This will be my safety net.

The world's undergoing a transitional phase. There are 'wicked problems' that would require herculean efforts to overcome. Rapid climate change, accelerating technology advancements, disturbing concentration of power, grossly imbalanced distribution of income and wealth, increasing incidences of severe health issues, resource overuse, colossal waste and catastrophic pollution levels. I'd like to bring up these topics as a basis for my science fiction writing, where the world's wicked problems are the causes which force directed evolution, space exploration and transformation of our planet; in parallel plots. 

Writing is going to be an uphill task. I've spent a month on research and rewiring my brain. Another on my story-line, prologue and first chapter. Having got into the groove and with some time well spent, I believe I'll succeed.

I would be very grateful for your support. It would ensure I don't have to continuously distract myself with side projects, and enable me to stay focused. Please chip in, wish me luck and follow for updates :)

Thank you.
