SIDELIGHTS: Lee E. Födi told CA: "I wrote my first book when I was six years old. Many things have changed since Barnyard Ruckus, but my love of nature and all things wizardly have not. In fact, my ecological sensibilities and avid study of world folklore have inspired much of my writing and art, including Corranda's Crown.

"I grew up amidst the mountains, forests, lakes, and deserts of southwestern British Columbia, Canada. I studied at the University of British Columbia and have a degree in English literature and a diploma in fine arts.

"As a child, I immersed myself in such magical story lands as Narnia, Oz, and the fairy worlds of Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm. I still like to think of myself as a big kid, and in my own writing I try to tell the stories that I myself would have wanted to read when I was growing up."

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
