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: Trish McCormack on Feb. 22, 2013 :
Great to be back in Jessica's theatre world with another page-turning mystery and some good twists. I loved the character of Dennis and enjoyed watching him change his life around. Another Jessica mystery soon Bev??

Review by: Genesis Cotterell on June 28, 2012 :
I enjoyed reading Body on the Stage. The paralell themes of good and evil were nicely portrayed and culminated in believable outcomes. I could imagine Dennis the main character quite clearly and came to like him. I felt the character portrayals in this book were strong and convincing and it was a compelling read.
