Suzanne made her mark in children's literature with the New York Times–bestselling Underland Chronicles, which started with the acclaimed book Gregor the Overlander. In The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins continues to explore the effect of violence on those coming of age. She was inspired to write The Hunger Games when an idea formed whilst she flicked between television channels broadcasting real war coverage and reality television programmes. The Hunger Games and the sequels Catching Fire and Mockinjay have been successfully brought to the big screen.
Suzanne lives with her family in Connecticut.
