Suzanne Collins was born on August 10, 1962. She was born in Hartford, Connecticut and graduated from Indiana University with a double major in Drama and Telecommunications. Collins went on to receive an M.F.A. from New York University in dramatic writing. Since 1991, she has been a writer for children's television shows. She has worked on the staffs of several shows including Clarissa Explains it All, The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo, Little Bear and Oswald. She also co-wrote the Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! and was the head writer for Scholastic Entertainment's Clifford's Puppy Days. Her books include When Charlie McButton Lost Power, The Underland Chronicles, and the Hunger Games Trilogy. Book one of this trilogy, The Hunger Games, became a major motion picture in 2012 with Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence portraying the main character of Katniss Everdeen. Catching Fire, book 2 of the trilogy, became a major motion picture in 2013.

From The Hunger Games
The moment the anthem ends, we are taken into custody
I don't mean we're handcuffed or anything, but a group of Peacekeepers marches us through the front door of the Justice Building
Maybe tributes have tried to escape in the past
I've never seen that happen though
Once inside, I'm conducted to a room and left alone
It's the richest place I've ever been in, with thick, deep carpets and a velvet couch and chairs
I know velvet because my mother has a dress with a collar made of the stuff
When I sit on the couch, I can't help running my fingers over the fabric repeatedly
It helps to calm me as I try to prepare for the next hour
The time allotted for the tributes to say good-bye to their loved ones
I cannot afford to get upset, to leave this room with puffy eyes and a red nose
Crying is not an option
There will be more cameras at the train station
My sister and my mother come first
I reach out to Prim and she climbs on my lap, her arms around my neck, head on my shoulder, just like she did when she was a toddler
My mother sits beside me and wraps her arms around us
For a few minutes, we say nothing
Then I start telling them all the things they must remember to do, now that I will not be there to do them for them
