About Molly Potter
Author, trainer and teacher is available for bespoke talks and training
I started out as a scientist. However, I soon realised that chemistry did not have abundant opportunities for working with people and they were what really interested me – so I jumped ship and trained as a primary school teacher. I have subsequently worked with children and in education in a variety of guises for a long time.
The first books I had published were in creative thinking, problem solving and personal, social and health education (PSHE) and were aimed at teachers. Later, I moved on to write picture books that help young children with tricky emotions and situations. I feel my honest, open, down-to-earth approach leaves children informed and reassured.
I live in the fine city of Norwich with my reasonably well-trained husband. I have two grown up children who manage my over-excitability extremely well! I love travelling, learning, reading, yoga, fiddle playing, papier mâché, being outdoors – especially cycling, laughing and mischief!
