WORK IN PROGRESS: Research for four new stories.


SIDELIGHTS: Rosaline Fox told CA: "Like most writers, I developed a love of reading at an early age. The library was my home away from home.


"I didn't begin writing until after I was married and had my family. In fact, my youngest daughter and her friends said I wrote good newsletters for the school, why didn't I write a book? Since I always had characters running around inside my head, I decided to give writing a book a try. I first thought I might like to write a western, but I worked full-time and had a busy life raising a family. I found I bogged down in doing historical research. The girls were reading a lot of contemporary romance and suggested I do one of those. I liked the happy endings in romance fiction and set about pulling together a story.


"The characters I choose are what influences the stories I tell. I like to take ordinary people, give them extraordinary problems to deal with, and reward them with a partner worthy of everlasting love. I believe a majority of readers want to believe that there's a perfect mate for everyone.


"Characters come to me first, then I have to find a setting and a plot for them. I develop character and setting worksheets, and then write a full synopsis of how the story might flow. Of course when a writer gets into a book it sometimes deviates from the original synopsis. But I find it a necessary tool for me to have the endgame in sight. Once I start a book, I write at least six hours a day until the project is finished. I revise both as I go and again after I reread the entire manuscript."

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.
