Storyteller, Author, Speaker.
Welcome! I am the author of four books, numerous short stories, and articles that have appeared in magazines and journals. I also facilitate workshops on teaching others to spark their own creativity. We can use that creative spark for self-expression and authenticity. See more about my writing, creativity, and communication workshops at IzoldaT.com.
I have finished writing “Own Your Talk.” It is being edited, and I’m super excited. Based on my workshop of the same name, this book will help you build the confidence to connect with any audience. Additionally, you will learn to engage your “inner yenta.” Then, you will explore how to communicate authentically in meetings, interviews, and presentations. Afterward, you will share your story with joy.
In the fiction world, I am writing the third book in the Fairy Godmother Diaries (“The Player’s Crossroad“). After that, I hope to get started on “Ishtar’s Temple.”

A Little About Me
I was born in the former Soviet Union, and my family immigrated to the USA. As soon as I learned English, I became a voracious reader. Writing came later to me, but I have always been a teacher and storyteller. My books blend my love of music, fantasy, travel, and adventure with love, friendship, and our hidden selves.
I teach singing, writing, and self-expression to organizations, corporations, and at colleges. My “Work in Harmony®” and “Own Your Talk” workshops have garnered rave reviews at conferences and other events.
