Christy Potter


I'm an award-winning writer and journalist whose work has appeared in newspapers and magazines across the country. I have developed a pretty decent following through my blog, which focuses on the craft of writing and showcases my work as well as interviews with well-known writers. My most recent book is “The World Was My Oyster But I Didn’t Know How to Cook.” I'm also the author of “The Shiksa’s Guide to Yiddish” and write a regular food column under the name Ty Pott.
I'm also a runner, sculptor, environmentalist and thrift store queen. More of her work can be found on my blog. I'm also on Facebook and Twitter. I live in Morristown, New Jersey with my husband, two cats and closet full of neuroses.
