La Fargeville, NY, Jun 17, 2009 — As a child, writer Ellen Potter says New York City was the background for her earliest stories. It still is. Potter lives in Stone Mills, near Watertown. Her books include the award winning series, Olivia Kidney, Pish Posh and her newest novel, Slob. She told Todd Moe that many of her main characters are based on people she knew while growing up in the city.
