Catching Fire

The highly-anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games is the kind of novel that has you pulling back to take a breath and go, "How did the author think of this?" (if you can stop turning the pages long enough to breathe). Catching Fire picks up right where Hunger Games left off.

Suzanne Collins

Suzanne Collins is an American cartoon writer and author.

Suzanne started her career in 1991 by writing for children's television shows. For Nickelodeon, sheworked on several television shows, including "Clarissa Explains It All", "The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo", "Little Bear" and "Oswald the Octopus". She also helped on "Clifford's Puppy Days".

When she met a man named James Proimos working on a Kids WB show called Generation O!, she was inspired to write children's books. The inspiration for "Gregor the Overlander" 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 most likely find something other than a tea party. [cite web|author = Collins, Suzanne|year = |title = Biography|format =|work =|url = http://www.suzannecollinsbooks.com/bio.htm| accessdate= 2006-02-25]

Suzanne also has a rhyming picture book illustrated by Mike Lester entitled "When Charlie McButton Lost Power". "Gregor and the Code of Claw" was released in 2007, as the last book of The Underland Chronicles.

Suzanne is the author of a novel entitled "The Hunger Games", which was released in September 2008.

She now lives in Connecticut with her family along with a pair of feral kittens they found in their backyard and adopted.
