Creator: Suzanne Collins

Suzanne Collins is an author of speculative fiction for kids and a screenwriter. By far her best known work is The Hunger Games and its sequels, but she also wrote The Underland Chronicles for a younger audience. Before her career as a novelist, she served as a writer on several Nickelodeon shows, including Clarissa Explains It All and The Mystery Files Of Shelby Woo, and the Kids' WB! cartoon Generation O!!

Works by Suzanne Collins with their own trope pages include:

Her works contain examples of:

  • Food Porn: Both The Hunger Games and, to a lesser extent, The Underland Chronicles contain descriptions of lavish meals, making for interesting Mood Whiplashes when contrasted with some of the other things described in them.
  • Primal Fear: She seems to be a fan of these. Her books are filled with deadly bugs (sometimes deadly giant bugs), vicious animals, burning/drowning/disembowelment/horrifically cruel deaths, and being eaten alive (often by bugs or vicious animals).
  • Rule of Three: In both The Underland Chronicles and The Hunger Games, each book consists of three parts, which in turn consist of nine (three times three) chapters each.
