Dinko Šimunović (1 September 1873 – 3 August 1933) was a Croatian writer.

Dinko Šimunović was born in Knin. He spent most of his life as a teacher in villages of the Zagora, the hinterland of southern Croatia.

He wrote many stories and novels, all dealing with people from his native region. He considered rural life superior to urban, but he showed compassion for people forced to emigrate due to poverty.

He died in Zagreb.
