SIDELIGHTS:

Rickey R. Mallory told CA: "I retired from my career as assistant chief of pharmacy at a major medical center to pursue my other loves, writing and art. Besides writing, I design and create covers for books for several print and electronic publishers. My grandfather and father were steeped in the southern storytelling tradition, and I aspire to be as a good a storyteller as my father. My mother considers books a precious resource and taught me to love and respect books and authors."
