Alexander Khan was born to mixed race parents in 1970s Britain before being shipped off to northern Pakistan by relatives from his father side. He never saw his white mother again. Still only a boy, and all the odds against him, Alexander makes a life-threatening bid to escape from a madrassa (a notorious Islamic school) and made his way back to England via a series of astonishing adventures.
When he turned 20, Alexander joined the British army, and during his time in the military he successfully completed P COMPANY, a brutal physical and psychological trail outside SAS selection.
As a military Parachutist, Alexander was also active in various sports including Regimental boxing, Skydiving, Climbing and Skiing in Bavaria. He served overseas in Germany, Kuwait and Iraq. On leaving the military, Alexander trained as a Bodyguard and worked as a military adviser to TV and films.
Alexander wrote about his personal life experiences in bestselling Orphan of Islam, published by HarperCollins UK. He is also the author of (short stories) 'The Recruit' & 'Act of Vengeance'.
He now works as a Cultural and Language Advisor, and lives with his wife Jessica on the south coast of England.
