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.
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.

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!

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.
