Donald Henderson (before 1905–1947) was an English writer.

As a young man Henderson spent a period in a stockbrokers' office, and then became an actor. Later he joined the staff of the BBC.

From early youth he had written novels and plays under various pseudonyms. He first used his own name on the 1943 psychological thriller Mr. Bowling Buys a Newspaper,[1] which got considerable critical attention in wartime Britain. In the immediate aftermath of World War II he published a second novel in the same genre, the 1946 Goodbye to Murder.[2]

Henderson's career was cut short when he contracted an illness and died in 1947.
