“The question, “Where are you from?” trips me up every time. Born in England to world-traveling parents, I was whisked around the globe to Italy, Texas, New York, Mississippi, Florida and India. Then I turned ten. India became my home for seven years as I attended boarding schools near Delhi and Calcutta.”
