Paul G. Tremblay (born June 30, 1971) is an American author and editor of contemporary horror, dark fantasy, and science fiction. He is also a juror for the Shirley Jackson Awards.


Tremblay was born in Aurora, Colorado, and raised in Massachusetts. He attended Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island, receiving his bachelor's degree in 1993. He obtained his master's degree in mathematics from the University of Vermont in 1995.

In summers between college, Tremblay worked at the Parker Brothers factory in Salem, Massachusetts, primarily in the warehouse and assembly lines. After graduation, he began teaching high school mathematics and coaching junior varsity basketball at a private school outside Boston, Massachusetts called Saint Sebastian’s School, where he still teaches today.[1]

In 2015, Focus Features optioned his novel A Head Full of Ghosts. It is in development with Team Downey (Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey) and Allegiance Theater (Dan Dubiecki) as producers.[2] FilmNation acquired the rights to The Cabin at the End of the World in April 2018, before its publication.[3]
