Located in the Newtown, CT hamlet of Sandy Hook, this is the home of Charles A. Pryor and his wife Suzanne M. Collins. Suzanne Collins is an American television writer and novelist, best known for writing The Hunger Games series including the novel of the same name, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. Collins is a long-time Connecticut resident. Collins was born on August 10, 1962 in Hartford, Connecticut. Her books contain graphic violence and sexuality for which a lot of controversy has been brought up due to the targeted age group of the readers.
