#AuthorFeature – Suzanne Collins – #WomensHistoryMonth 10/03/2017

Welcome to the final day of my features for this week where I talk about just some of the women that I personally feel have helped shaped not only the literary world, but also my tastes as a reader. These are not going to be lengthy essay types โ€“ they tend to drivel on. We want our features to be short and sweet!

My final feature this week is Suzanne Collins

Collins’ career started in writing for children’s television before venturing into children’s fiction. Collins’ first published works were the UNDERLAND CHRONICLES. It was in September 2008 that THE HUNGER GAMES was first published. A series inspired by her father’s career in the Air Force – giving her an insight into the affects of war.

It will forever be refreshing to read about strong, independent woman who fight for what they believe in. Unfortunately there are too many novels out there where the woman is shown as the victim, they are weak and dependent on men. Katniss Everdeen is up there with some of the greats; Sarah Connor, Buffy Summers and Eileen Ripely to name a few!

Be sure to check in next week when *M* takes the reins!

      I’ll be honest – I hadn’t heard of the Underland Chronicles until I started delving into the history!

        Loving them. It is a super feature very chilled. If you like children’s fantasy books at all take a look. He goes to rescue his little sister behind the washers in the basement of the building where they live. Giant cockroaches flying dragons and war. It is brilliant 5 books I think.
        Looking forward to your next feature now xx
