If you dont start your sentences like this it is going to look like your stating your opinion or something that is generally believed to be true. The protagonist is killed on page 30 This is wrong! The protagonist is killed in the forrest! Same problem: In line 36 Michelle Obama talks about her husband No! At the National Democratic Convention she talks about her husband. This is how you should do it: Michelle Obama talks about her husband (l. 36) or When Michelle Obama talks about her husband (l. 36) Be precise: Earlier in time or In the past arent proper expressions to talk about historic events.
