SIDELIGHTS:

After a career in publishing and public relations in New York, NY, Margaret Carroll turned her writing talents to fiction. Her debut novel, The Write Match, described by Roundtable Reviews contributor Tracy Fransworth as "engaging from the first page," features protagonist Kit McCabe, a writer for a weddings magazine. Her current assignment is covering the winners of a wedding contest who are receiving an all-expenses-paid event arranged by noted wedding consultant Ethel Van Winterden. On the first day of Kit's assignment, she shares a cab with a man with whom she experiences an instant reciprocal attraction, only to discover when they arrive at the same destination that Mark Dawson is the groom. Mark's bride-to-be is a model who is using the wedding publicity to forward her own career. Kit can do no more than wish that she could replace her, because pursuing Mark could have a negative effect on her own career. Maria Hatton reviewed the romance for Booklist, writing: "Cute and funny, this timely tale touches the romantic streak in us all."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
