Bev Robitai currently works as a writer, book coach, and freelance photographer while travelling in New Zealand and Ontario in Canada. It's an itinerant lifestyle of year-round summer involving boats and motorhomes and a ski chalet. 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.

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.
