Margo Requarth told CA: "I was a reflective child, more comfortable writing about my feelings and observations than talking with others. I was also a voracious reader and still am. My work was influenced by my own experience of losing my mother to suicide as a young child. As a therapist and bereavement counselor, I have encountered many young people who are also dealing with suicide loss. I discovered very little had been written to help them cope with this confusing and stigmatizing death. I felt I could offer support, information, and a compassionate way of looking at the aftermath of suicide. During my writing and research journey, I interviewed nearly two hundred children, teens, and adults who had been impacted by suicide, a process which moved and motivated me."

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.
