“I knew the bride when she used to rock n roll” is based on true life events. An original work, though it isn’t the ‘scariest’ ghost story ever told, but it’s one with a difference.

About the author

Ricky Dale was born in England and raised in West Africa and North America; his mother referred to the family as being of ‘Colonial’ nationality.

A former singer, whose singing career began in 1959 with one-nighters, college dates, and the occasional radio show. As fame increased, he began to- and fro-ing across the Atlantic, between the UK and Canada, charming capacity audiences in clubs and theatres. An individual style and heartfelt rendering of ballads, and the contrast of his wild Rock ’n Roll were, he says, “inspired from the hope and energy of West Africa”.

Ricky was MD of several innovative companies in the West of England for 21 years, and now spends his time writing.
