For her "lasting contribution to children's literature" she received the international Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1990. Zwerger was born in Vienna in 1954. She studied 1971 to 1974 at the Applied Arts Academy of Vienna, but left before completing the course of studies. She married English artist John Rowe.
