Patricia Mary St. John (1919–1993) was an English writer. She worked most of her life as a Protestant missionary nurse in Morocco. Although at first she worked with her brother in the main foreign hospital, she later spent four years manning a village clinic in a more remote area. During her time as the house mother at Clarendon school which was under her aunt, she wrote Treasures of the Snow and Tanglewoods' Secret. Her later novels Star of Light and Secret of the Fourth Candle were based on her experiences in Tangiers.
