Tal Boldo likes to write under pseudonyms that relate to her stories. She published her latest novel, the adult love story, Looking Glass Friends , under the pen name, E. L.

For her middle grade fantasy, The Sound & The Echoes , she chose the pen name, Dew Pellucid , as a clue to her own name (since her Hebrew name, Tal, means Dew in English).

Currently, Tal is working on a revised e

“Echoes can’t read minds. But when you get to know someone very well, you can read their expressions. Pay attention. It will happen to you too.”
Dew Pellucid

“What you look like and how great you are rarely go hand in hand. Otherwise, we’d have no trouble judging good men from bad, now would we?”
Dew Pellucid

“Christmas ribbons decked every crystal ball knocker on every sparkling door as far as the eye could see. Through the snowy streets of the Veiled Village, Echoes and Sounds rushed to and fro, their shimmering clothes looking like pouring rain or ice or waves. Before them multi-colored parcels fluttered like strange birds carried on small see-through wings, and every once in a while two parcels would collide and rain down gifts.”
Dew Pellucid

“You were my marital bliss,” he said to me this morning. “You can be again!” You know what I answered? “A marital blister, that’s what we’ll have if I stay.”

“It’s not just a choice: to live, to die,” she insisted. “If your mind ceases to exist, it will be the end of the world as you know it.”

“I’m euphoric with dopamine when I think of you. My infatuation with the memory of your face has flooded my neurons with Serotonin. My restless need to be with you has thrown in some norepinephrine. I’m a chemical basket case. But since I refuse to blame you, I’ve decided to blame my brain. Maybe if I believe I’ve reversed cause and effect I’ll get better.”
E. L. Neve
