The writer is a survivor of an accident that altered his life. He is a man who managed to overcome adversity and transform bitterness into personal success, as his literary gains outweighed his physical restrictions. Where his physical condition limited his movements, his art of creative writing opened up a new horizon for him that enabled him to freely interact with his readers. This is a real-life account of how a human can overcome obstacles, giving effect to the epithet: "What does not kill me makes me stronger."
The biography defines patience in two ways: firstly, a bitter experience; and secondly, the ability to tolerate and turn one's misfortune into investment. The accident that the writer suffered has paralysed his body, however, at the same time it has unleashed his writing talents.
Egyptian writer Yousef El-Sharoni

Mohamed Eid AI-Araimi was born in 1954 in Wadi al-Mur in eastern Oman and travelled widely in the Arabian Gulf before obtaining a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from the U.S. Near dawn one fateful night, en route to his work site in the oil fields of the Omani desert, he had a tragic accident when his car collided with a came] in the road. Faced with severe disabilities, he exerted himself in physical rehabilitation and was eventually able to resume his professional career.

His Arabic writings include the novel Mark of Chain, a novella called Between Desert and Sea, and a collection of stories entitled Rainbow. He also translated George Orwell's Animal Farm into Arabic.
