Suzanne Collins began her career in 1991 as a writer for children's television shows. She worked on several shows for Nickelodeon, including Clarissa Explains It All, The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo, Little Bear, Oswald and Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!. She did not write the children's book Little Bear, which is sometimes mistaken as her own book. She was also the head writer for Scholastic Entertainment's Clifford's Puppy Days. She received a Writers Guild of America nomination in animation for co-writing the critically acclaimed Christmas special, Santa, Baby! After meeting children's author James Proimos while working on the Kids' WB show Generation O!, Collins felt inspired to write children's books herself. Her inspiration for Gregor the Overlander, the first book of The New York Times best-selling series The Underland Chronicles, came from Alice in Wonderland, when she was thinking about how one was more likely to fall down a manhole than a rabbit hole, and would find something other than a tea party. Between 2003 and 2007 she wrote the five books of the Underland Chronicles: Gregor the Overlander, Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane, Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods, Gregor and the Marks of Secret, and Gregor and the Code of Claw. During that time, Collins also wrote a rhyming picture book, When Charlie McButton Lost Power (2005), illustrated by Mike Lester.
Suzanne Collins is an American television writer and novelist from Connecticut, best known as the author of bestselling fantasy young-reader series The Underland Chronicles and the dystopian post-apocalyptic young-adult series The Hunger Games trilogy (comprised of the books The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay). The Hunger Games trilogy was adapted into a popular film series.
Year of the Jungle, her picture book based on the year her father was deployed in Vietnam, was published in 2013 to great critical acclaim. To date, her books have been published in 53 languages around the world.
After writing books consistently for 7 years, from 2003 to 2010, Collins took a short break from writing. However, in 2013 is the release of a brand new book by Suzanne Collins entitled Year of the Jungle which is to hit store shelves in September of the year. Quite different from the trilogy and series that made her a multimillion-selling author, this book is based about her family life as a child. It is inspired by the time spent by her father serving in the Vietnam War. Collins stated that she waited this long to write the story because figuring out how tell it in a way suitable for her young audience was a challenge. She based in off the post cards her father used to send while in service and some of them featured details Collins considered to be quite scary.
Many fans of the Underland series speculate that it will never be transformed into a movie, to their own dismay. However, that does not mean that books written by Suzanne Collins are not worthy of the big screen. On the contrary, Lions Gate Entertainment raised one their biggest movie budgets ever, a whopping $88,000,000 to make a film adaption of The Hunger Games. The agreement for the movie wa
