He was born in the Egyptian city of Tanta, and first showed an interest in reading at a very young age. With the encouragement of his parents, he made his first attempts at writing at the age of about thirteen, and in high school joined journalism, photography, and theatre workgroups.

He started writing Rewayat by following an advertisement in the World of Books magazine, saying that the Modern Arab Association was seeking science fiction novelists. He submitted his novel Ray of Death, and it was published a year later as the first book in Malaf Al Mostakbal (The Future File) series. Soon afterwards, he started on his other main series of novels, Ragol Al Mostaheel (The Man of the Impossible), which is said to be based on the actual exploits of an Egyptian Central Intelligence agent called A.S.

Other than his series, he wrote articles for two newspapers and three magazines, and started working on scripts for television series after finishing two films scripts, with a third one in progress. A new novel of (The Man of the Impossible) (Ragol Al Mostaheel) will be released titled ن-٣, which in arabic symbolizes the third best hero in the general intelligence, through which ن-٣ will reveal, with his unique skills and exceptional abilities, the answers to many questions related to the previous issues.
