Izolda Trakhtenberg, Writer, Storyteller 

Welcome! My name is Izolda Trakhtenberg. I’m the author of six books, numerous short stories, and articles that have appeared in magazines and journals. In fiction, I write urban fantasy, science fiction, paranormal romance, and mysteries. In non-fiction, I write on mindful creativity, self-development, and creative collaborations.

My next book, tentatively titled, The Tarot Card Murders, is the first book in a new mystery series. It’s about Cassie Belmont, a professional tarot card reader who works with the police to solve crimes in Washington DC with a little magic peppered in.

I also facilitate workshops on teaching others to spark their own creativity. We can all use that creative spark for self-expression and our truth.

A Little About Me

I was born in the former Soviet Union. After a year-long immigration journey during which we lived in a war zone, my family arrived in the USA when I was seven years old. After I learned English, my amazing sixth-grade English teacher, Linda Gutman inspired me to become a voracious reader. Writing came later to me, but I have always been a teacher and storyteller. My books blend my love of mystery, music, fantasy, and adventure with love, friendship, and universal mysteries.

Through my workshops, I help people, companies, and organizations build their own creative genius and innovation skills. My “Work in Harmony®” and “Tell Your Story Better” workshops have garnered rave reviews at conferences, company meetings, and other events.
