Author Biography: Ezekiel Kwaymullina (Author) Ezekiel Kwaymullina is from the Palyku people of the Pilbara region of Western Australia. He is the author of several picture books, including We All Sleep (2015), Dreamers (2014) and My Country (2011), all illustrated by Sally Morgan. Sally Morgan (Illustrator) Sally Morgan was born in Perth, Western Australia in 1951. She is a full-time painter and writer. For as long as she can remember Sally wanted to paint and write. However, at school she was discouraged from expressing herself through her art because her teachers failed to see the promise in her individual style. It was not until she researched her family history and discovered her Aboriginal identity that she found meaning in her images, and gained the confidence to pick up her paints again. Both her books and her paintings and screenprints have earned awards and wide-spread popularity.
