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.

She worked as a journalist for 15 years, including The Times' business sections and a number of publications on a freelance basis, and wrote a financial advice book for women, The Money Goddess. 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. This took her 6 months writing full time to complete, nd she had to borrow money from her father. The novel was adapted into a film starring Emily Blunt in 2016. In November 2016, she was listed as one of BBC's 100 Women. She lives in South London.

Resenhas

Thriller leve, para todos os efeitos um passeio hitchcockiano forjado com tensão, elementos de voyeurismo, auto-aversão e intenção assassina misturados em um coquetel volátil gentilmente mexido pela autora. O quebra-cabeça de como as várias peças pessoais e narrativas eventualmente se encaixam exerce interesse, mas os personagens são severos e adimensionais em seu mau comportamento confessional psicodramático que gera um certo voyeurísmo pornô
