About

Hello! My name is Katy Rochelle.

My journey to Hogwarts was like so many fans of the popular series. Reading the books and watching the movies was a cherished past-time growing up. The series defined my childhood and continued to inspire curiosity, creativity, and a love of reading well into my adult life.

As an English graduate from Valencia College with an Associates in Arts, I love to write about all things pop culture while trying to live my best queer-witch life. On Potter Talk, the magic lives on for those who dare to be swept away into another world.

I'm dedicated to making this Harry Potter based space as diverse as possible within the Harry Potter community as well as the realm of reading and literature.

As a fan of the series, and queer identifying individual, I disagree with the views of the author about the transgender and LGBTQ+ community. I don't just stand in solidarity with these individuals. I strive to celebrate trans, non-binary, and gender fluid creators as well as financially support the community. For Harry Potter related products that I purchase or receive, I donate an equal amount to organizations such as National Center for Trans Equality, The Trevor Project, and more. I also strive to read and review books by LGBTQ+ authors, especially within the fantasy genre. 

This site centers on the Harry Potter franchise, but my aim is to aid those just starting their journey or alumni who have been with Harry since the beginning to be open-minded and inclusive.

Through this blog, I've explored events at Wizarding World of Harry Potter Florida, attended media events LeakyCon and GeekyCon with press membership, and featured product reviews. Potter Talk has also been highlighted on Orlando Sentinel and myWebRoom (now defunct).
