Paula Hawkins (born 26 August 1972) is a Zimbabwe-born British author, best known for her best-selling psychological thriller novel The Girl on the Train (2015). Hawkins' second thriller novel, Into the Water, was released in 2017.

Hawkins was born and raised in Salisbury, Rhodesia (now Harare, Zimbabwe). Her father was an economics professor and financial journalist. Before moving to London in 1989 at the age of 17, Hawkins attended Arundel School, Harare, Zimbabwe then studied for her A-Levels at Collingham College, an independent college in Kensington, West London. Hawkins read philosophy, politics and economics at Keble College, University of Oxford.

Hawkins wrote 4 romantic comedy novels under the name Amy Silver, including Confessions of a Reluctant Recessionista.

Hawkins then challenged herself to write a darker, more serious story. Thi s became her breakthrough novel The Girl on the Train (2015), a complex thriller, with themes of domestic violence, alcohol, and drug abuse.

No ei tämä nyt mikään Kiltti tyttö ollut, mutta ihan kelvollinen jännäri. Ennalta-arvattavampi kuin hypetettiin. Nopealukuinen, tämmönen välipala.
