"A thrilling spy story of a Nazi conspiracy." Dorothy Grace Waring (1891 – 1977) was an English fascist campaigner in Northern Ireland and England and under the pseudonym D. Gainsborough Waring, the author of 12 novels from 1936 onwards.

During the Irish War of Independence, her father was an Ulster Special Constabulary (USC or "B-Specials") commander, and they lived at Lisnacree House near Kilkeel, County Down, which doubled as a USC post. In September 1920, Lisnacree House was raided by the Irish Republican Army (IRA), looking for guns, and they were held hostage for some hours. Afterwards there was a gunfight, but no one was killed. From 1922, complaints were received about Harnett's alleged over-zealous strip searching of women suspected of carrying weapons or messages on behalf of the IRA. She was defended by Northern Ireland's minister of home affairs, but concerned that her actions might lead to local rioting, she was dismissed in March 1923.

In the late 1920s, she joined the British Fascists (BF), was a close friend of the founder, Rotha Lintorn-Orman, and became a senior party member. In May 1932, she became the editor of the party newspaper, and became the propaganda officer. After the winding up of the BF she joined the pro-German The Link.

In 1936, as D. Gainsborough Waring she published her first novel, Nothing Irredeemable, and 11 more would follow. Much of her work was set in a "barely fictionalized south Down", involved the gentry, British intelligence officers, and the occult.
