SIDELIGHTS:

Toni McGee Causey is a Louisiana native who, with her husband, owns a civil engineering firm. Her career as a writer began with a three-book deal with St. Martin's Press. In the first book in the series, Bobbie Faye's Very (Very, Very, Very) Bad Day, Bobbie Faye Sumrall lives a life of chaos, beginning in this story with a flooded trailer, the result of a faulty washing machine. Her no-account brother Roy has been kidnapped, and the ransom is to be a tiara she inherited from her mother. She had planned on wearing the tiara when she reigns as queen of the Lake Charles, Louisiana, Contraband Festival Days, a pirate-themed celebration, but the tiara is stolen when she goes to the bank to collect it. Playing the part of a modern-day pirate, Bobbie Faye takes command of a truck and its hunky driver, Trevor, and they embark on a wild ride through bayou country to avoid the police, FBI, and assorted villains who are on her trail.

In reviewing the novel on Bookreporter.com, Joe Hartlaub wrote: "There are many things to love about this book—the plot, the pacing, the dialogue—but my own favorite element is the characterization…. But if you want a short description of this great novel, think Die Hard in the swamp." "Causey doesn't miss a beat in this wonderful, wacky celebration of Southern eccentricity," wrote a Publishers Weekly contributor.

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.
