Míša Alexander and Erin Knutt created Fergus & Delilah, a children’s book that is changing a generation’s view on disabilities.
Míša has worked as graphic designer & illustrator for over 20 years in various studios around Australia as well as internationally for the United Nations as part of the Electoral Commision in East Timor & Afghanistan. Human rights has always interested her and now having a child with a disability she feels more compelled to take action and make a change in our society. Míša has now embarked on completing her Masters in Human Rights and advocates for children with a disability as she is inspired by the need for more inclusive schools and communities.
Erin has a Bachelor of Primary Education and currently is a Special Needs Teacher in the Far North Coast, NSW. She has been working with children over the last 15 years in a variety of teaching settings, and as a mother of two young children she recognises the power of using picture books in early education.
