 Although I now live in the United States, I've set "Peggy", a tv pilot in the United Kingdom, the country where I was born and grew up.

I'm part Welsh, part Ukrainian. My daughter's father is a Syrian living in Israel. Her husband is from Cairo. My son's in-laws are from Gujarat. My brothers' first wife was from Mauritius. Their daughter's first husband was Greek.  My husband's maternal grandparents were from Sweden. His paternal grandfather was English, his paternal grandmother was French Canadian. What a glorious melting pot!
