Suzanne Collins

Suzanne Collins began her career working in children's television, writing for shows as diverse as Clarissa Explains it All and Clifford's Puppy Days before turning to writing critically acclaimed fantasy and science fiction novels for children and teens.

Her New York Times bestselling Alice in Wonderland and written for middle-grade readers, tells the story of a New York City boy who falls down a laundry chute and finds a fantastical world where cockroaches, bats, rats, and other creatures are at war—and where a hero is prophesied to arrive.

The Hunger Games and its sequels, teen science fiction about a dark, totalitarian future, are winning "editor's choice" and "best of" selections from book reviewers and raves from fans of all ages.

Collins currently lives in Connecticut, where she is finishing the third novel in the Hunger Games series.
