Evie Del Rio was the one, as far as Ed Nash was concerned.

Growing up in the 80’s, their teenage love was the inspiration for his song ‘Used to Be’ and helped Ed’s indie band, The Mountaineers, to international fame.

But when Evie and her family suddenly up sticks and leave their London home without a forwarding address, she leaves a heartbroken Ed behind too.

Over thirty years later, washed up rocker Ed is suddenly back in the limelight when Evie’s love song is used as the theme tune for a new TV drama. Once the song is later featured on TV documentary ‘Musical Muses: The Girl in the Song’ it’s suddenly not just Ed who’s asking…

What happened to Evie Del Rio?

Sarah Watts

I’ve always enjoyed the written word and have started writing many a novel, but ‘What Happened to Evie Del Rio’ is the one that I am most proud of as it’s been in my head for such a long time. The lockdown enabled me to crack on and get it finished.

I like to think that I am currently enjoying my ‘middle youth’, rather than my ‘middle age’. I’m married and Mum to 2 boys, a 20-year-old and a 15-year-old but I still enjoy going to gigs and discovering new music.

I love reading women’s fiction, but I do have a bit of a penchant for crime and psychological thrillers! If I’m not on social media, reading, writing or listening to music you will probably find me on a football pitch cheering on my youngest son and his team.

I have always had music in my life; my late father was a jazz drummer and growing up I enjoyed the gig circuit as many of my friends were in bands and together with my love of the written word I have always wanted to write a book centred around an indie/rock band.
