Suzanne Collins

Author of The Hunger Games and 10+ Books


Suzanne Collins has been doing busy writing for television for children since 1991. She has worked on a number of Nickelodeon shows staffs. Most recently she was the Head Writer for Clifford's Puppy Days at Scholastic Entertainment. While working on a Kids WB show called Generation O!, she met James Proimos, the author of children, who spoke to her to try out books for children. One day thinking of Alice in Wonderland, she was struck by how pas... toral the setting must seem to children who have lived in urban surroundings like her own. You're far more likely to fall down a manhole in New York City than a rabbit hole and, if you do, you won't find a tea party. What could you be finding..? Well, that is Gregor the Overlander's story, the first book in her five-part series of fantasy/war, The Underland Chronicles. She currently lives with her family in Connecticut, and a couple of feral kittens that they adopted from their backyard.READ MORE

Popular quotes by Suzanne Collins


Upon this crown my pledge I give,
To my last breath,I hold this choice,
I will your unjust deaths avenge,
All here who died without a voice.

Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when it's morning again, they'll wash away
Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.

Katniss   Rue   Song

Nerrissa? You believe her? Well, you at least have to credit her with a certain instability! Remember when she told you that I was going to take over the Fount with and army of Lobsters?" said Ripred.
You did try to take over the Fount with an army of Lobsters." said Vikus.
Yes, yes, but it was years before she was born. My point is, she flip-flops in and out of time like a fish in shallow waters." answered Ripred.

The War Has Been Declared.
Your Ally Been Ensnared.
It Is Now Or It Is Never.
Break The Code Or Die Forever.
Time Is Running Out
Running Out
Running Out
To the Warrior Give My Blade
By His Hand Your Fate Is Made
But Do Not Forget the Ticking
Or the Clicking, Clicking, Clicking
While a Rat's Tongue May Be Flicking
With Its Feet It Does the Tricking
For the Paw and Not the Jaw
Makes the Code of Claw
Time Is Standing Still
Standing Still
Standing Still
Since the Princess Is the Key
To Unlock the Treachery
She Cannot Avoid the Matching or the Scratching, Scratching, Scratching
When a Secret Plot is Hatching
In the Naming Is the Catching
What She Saw, It Is the Flaw
Of the Code of Claw
Time is Turning Back
Turning Back
Turning Back
When the Monster's Blood Is Spilled
When the Warrior Has Been Killed
You Must Not Ingore the Rapping
Or the Tapping, Tapping, Tapping
If the Gnawers Find you Napping
You Will Rot While They Are Mapping
Out the Law of Those Who Gnaw
In the Code of Claw

Sometimes, when I clean a kill, I feed Buttercup the entrails. He has stopped hissing at me.
Entrails. No hissing. This is the closest we will ever come to love.

Ripred sighed. 'I suppose so. You and I seem to end up doing everything. Shall we say four members for each delegation?'
'Why not?' Luxa said. 'Four can be as stupid as ten. No need to crowd the room.'
Ripred laughed. 'You know, I think you an I are going to get on famously.
