She was born on December 3, 1960, in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, U.S. She now lives in New York City, U.S. However she has two citizenships: American and British. It is because she is the daughter of Anne Love, a British psychologist and social worker from Greenock, Scotland and Peter Moore Smith, an American, paratrooper, colonel and military judge.
