Amelia Gray (born August 17, 1982) is an American writer. She is the author of the short story collections AM/PM (Featherproof Books), Museum of the Weird (Fiction Collective Two), and Gutshot (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), and the novels THREATS (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), and Isadora (Farrar, Straus and Giroux). Gray has been shortlisted for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and her television writing has been nominated for a WGA Award.

The New York Times called Gray's stories "leaps of faith, brave excursions into the realms of the unreal." while the Los Angeles Times defined her style as “akin to the alternately seething and absurd moods of David Lynch and Cronenberg.” Of THREATS, NPR said "Amelia Gray's psychological thriller takes us to the brink between reality and delusion."

Gray is a member of Giving What We Can, a community of people who have pledged to give at least 10% of their income to effective charities.
