Observer music and arts editor Eva Raggio first published two stories at age 10 and sat on that achievement for almost two decades. Upon her re-entry to the literary world, Eva took to writing about music and culture in DFW, although she grew up in England and Argentina.

Paul McCartney once sang at her birthday party, and she last smoked out with Axl Rose.
