I’m a Brit who came to the States in 1989. Just for a year or two.
I’m still here.
This tells you how much I know.
But I do know that I was born in Kampala, Uganda and raised in East, and West Africa and at a boarding school in the New Forest, (which I also know is nothing of the sort—it’s very old. It had Charles I in it. How new can it be?).
The first book I ever read all the way through was ‘The Complete Nonsense’ by Edward Lear.
Things have not been the same since.
Also, I get to have the best job in the world—writing stories. And I get to work for the best bosses in the world—children. I am very grateful.
