Rick Ryckeley, Author of Musings from a Cluttered Mind, to Discuss his Book in Peachtree City

The Friends of the Peachtree City Library are honored to present Rick Ryckeley, The Wife, and The Boy in the first ever event featuring the entire family, on September 10, 2011 at 1:00 PM.

Rick will read from and discuss his book, Musings from a Cluttered Mind. The book is a compilation of his columns in “The Citizen” newspaper plus an introduction to each article.

Rick was born at 110 Flamingo Street, in the State of Georgia. He has been a firefighter for over a quarter of a century, and is currently a Fire Apparatus Operator of a Quint, or ladder truck. He is also an educator, and has won awards at the state and national levels for his work educating children about fire safety. His awards include Georgia’s Fire Safety Educator of the Year, Firefighter of the Year, and the Martin Luther King Humanitarian Award.

Musings from a Cluttered Mind is Rick’s first book; his second book in a series of four, Musings from a Really Cluttered Mind is set for release in April, 2012. His first novel, The Calling will be released in the fall of 2013.

Rick is one of the founders of the Go Two Guys, an organization of firefighters who work in the community as handypersons and who operate a charity. A portion of all of Rick’s book sales goes to that charity. The charity provides car seats, bike helmets, batting helmets, and other safety equipment for infants and children.

Musings from a Cluttered Mind will be available at Omega Book Store in the Peachtree Crossing Shopping Center, as well as from on-line outlets. Copies will be sold and autographed during his presentation at the Peachtree City Library.
