About Bev Robitai

Bev Robitai currently works as a writer, book coach, and freelance photographer in Auckland, New Zealand. She writes mostly light crime fiction, sometimes based in the theatre and sometimes straying into post-apocalyptic sci-fi. Her novel Murder in the Second Row was launched in June 2010 in a historic theatre that was also used as the setting for Body on the Stage. A decade of backstage experience gave her the raw material for both books and a third is under way.

A stand-alone novel Eye for an Eye is the tale of a quest for justice, inspired by the actions of a real-life conman whose trail of victims made the author angry enough to imagine retribution - in some very inventive ways...

The Sunstrike novels are set in a post-apocalyptic present day world when a major solar storm has wiped out all electrical technology. They are optimistic survival adventures following normal people learning and adapting to difficult new circumstances.

Review by: Susy Egneus on April 24, 2014 :
Bev delivers up food for thought on a plate served with interesting and well written characters, sprinkled with suspense and a concept that left me thinking about how I would cope if a situation like this occurred. I found this book intriguing, easy to read and I definitely wanted to know more the whole way though. Can't wait for the next one!

Review by: Kathy Tilley on Oct. 12, 2013 :
I really enjoyed this book, couldn't put it down and very easy to read.

A very interesting study of how society and individuals would survive and evolve following the loss of all electrical based technology.

Not a murder mystery, not sci-fi, just a story of life in New Zealand without electricity, a very possible scenario.
