Author Bio

Kirsten Maron writes fictional stories and What Would LaVonda Robinette Do? Is her second completed book. 

Kirsten has been creating stories since she first learned to write and at 6 won her first literary and only award with a cunning retelling of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. 

The frustrations of middle age provided Kirsten with the authorial fuel for writing her second book, but of course, unlike LaVonda, she would never actually murder anyone. 

Kirsten lives in rural NSW with her husband and several bossy kangaroos. She is currently working on her third novel; a sequel called What LaVonda Robinette Did Next.

Can she really get away with murder?

LaVonda Robinette likes to take charge, and yes, she can be a little bossy, because sometimes that is the only way to get things done. But lately, LaVonda's life is spinning out of her control: Her husband of twenty-five years walks out, she has a horrible run-in with a colleague, and to make matters worse, she experiences her first hot flush in a crowded supermarket. On her birthday.

It is enough to drive a person to murder.

After her colleague is accidentally, but conveniently killed, LaVonda is left in a bit of a state. The appropriate thing to do would be to confess and accept her punishment. And she will. But maybe she could put right a few wrongs first? Not everything is as straight-forward as LaVonda would like though and bumping people off is proving to be rather tricky.

Does she have what it takes?

Will her newfound interest put herself, and her family, in danger?

"What a quirky name and title for a book! This was a funny, light and engaging read which kept me entertained for the entire book. I really enjoyed reading this story about LaVonda who has enough things thrown at her in a short space of time to make her want to kill some people...There were a few little surprises and twists throughout the book and a big one at the end I didn’t see coming. Overall, a great read which will make readers smile and have a chuckle." Tracy, Book reviewer from Beauty and Lace.

"What would LaVonda Robinette Do? by Kirsten Maron was a very different book to I would normally read. It was good to try a different style and I must say well worth the read...I would never have thought that the dreaded menopause and murder would work so well together in a books story line. With a complete twist that you need to read the book to the end to uncover. A twist that I was not expecting at all!" Marisa, Book reviewer from Beauty and Lace.
