About the Author:
As a New York native, who currently resides in Harlem, Hakim Dream’s passion is found in his sci-fi novels. He is an Army veteran, and a single father raising two young twin daughters. In the span of 20 years, he has been a truck driver, Greyhound bus driver, bouncer, comedic performer, security guard, and aspiring sci-fi novelist. When not writing sci-fi thrillers and futuristic novels, he enjoys spending time with his daughters and cheering on the New York Knicks.
The Aphrodite Agenda
The first novel in Hakim’s saga, The Aphrodite Agenda transports readers to the future where it is up to womankind to save mankind from extinction. The year is 2029 and due to a deficiency within the ‘Y’ chromosome gene in the female reproductive gland, male babies are few and far between. Readers are introduced to an Atlanta base Pathologist Dr. Ivory Patella who has discovered a cure to the deficiency. While on her way to New York to get the cure patterned and approved by the ADA for distribution, she is hindered by a series of untimely events and bizarre situations, which prevent her from reaching New York with the cure. Dr. Patella must fight unknown forces that want a future without men, which would mean the end of civilization.
Readers also follow the mystery as the current president Doris Jamison, who is the first black female president in U.S. history, mysteriously turns up missing while vacationing near her home town in Louisiana. Senator Fontainebleau, who is the Great Incumbent to the seat of the presidency, is the prime suspect for the president’s disappearance, since he was the last person seen with her. He must find the president to clear his name, and in the process mend a pact that he has broken with the villagers of ‘Emakville’. If he fails, it could start an unholy war and the beginning of the Aphrodite Agenda.
