Bestselling author Suzanne Collins first made her mark in children’s literature with the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles for middle grade readers. Her debut for readers aged 12 and up, The Hunger Games (September 2008), was an instant bestseller, appealing to both teen readers and adults. It was called “addictive” by Stephen King in Entertainment Weekly, and “amazing” by Stephenie Meyer on her website. It has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than 180 consecutive weeks since publication, and has been the recipient of countless awards. There are more than 36.5 million copies of all three books in the trilogy, The Hunger Games (September 2008), Catching Fire (September 2009), and Mockingjay (August 2010), in print in the U.S. to date. Foreign publishing rights for The Hunger Games trilogy have been sold into 55 territories and 50 languages.
Suzanne Collins also had a successful and prolific career writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy®-nominated hit “Clarissa Explains It All” and “The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo”. She received a Writer’s Guild of America nomination in animation for co-writing the critically acclaimed Christmas special, “Santa, Baby!”
In 2010 Collins was named to the TIME 100 list as well as the Entertainment Weekly Entertainers of the Year list. In 2011 Fast Company named her to their 100 Most Creative People in Business.
