Sarah Groenewegen was born in Sydney, Australia, but now lives in London, UK. She was awarded a British Empire Model (BEM) in the Queen’s 2016 Birthday Honours for her services to law enforcement and diversity in the workplace.

Her first novel, The Daughters of Earth in Candy Jar’s Lethbridge-Stewart range, was published in July 2017 with a foreword by best-selling author Una McCormack.

Her short fiction has won awards (Scarlet Stiletto, 2002) and been published in Big Finish’s Doctor Who line, including the award winning Short Trips: Zodiac. Her latest short, “The Lock-In”, was published by Candy Jar’s Lethbridge-Stewart range in May 2016.

She has had essays about Doctor Who and SF published in anthologies including the Time Unincorporated series, Chicks Dig GamingCompanion Piece (on those stalwart friends of the Doctor in his/her travels in time and space), and Hugo-nominated Queers Dig Time Lords. Her monograph on “Face the Raven” for the Black Archive will be published in June 2018. She contributed over 20 entries to 1,001 TV Shows You Must Watch Before You Die.
