Born and mostly raised in Cairo, Egypt (But also a little in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), Alfy is a writer and author based in Toronto, Canada. Being a bit of a polymath, Alfy is also a licensed pharmacist in some jurisdictions. Because of this diverse background, Alfy is fortunate enough to write within a wide variety of fields & genres, from science & medicine, and critical review, through fiction & poetry, and onto historical & political commentary. Alfy is the proud author of Islam Versus Muslims , and the not so proud author of another book written under a pseudonym. When not writing for pleasure or drowning in content and technical writing tasks, Alfy enjoys forcing his family and friends to listen to his lectures about history. Alfy goes by his family name to make things easier for English speakers, since many of his Arabic-speaking friends already call him by it, but you can call him Abdallah if you promise not to butcher the pronunciation.
