Author(s): Nick Fawcett
Despite wrestling with a speech impediment throughout his formative years, Nick Fawcett responded to the call to ministry, studying at Bristol and Oxford universities before spending thirteen happy years in the Baptist ministry, first in Leigh, Lancashire and then in Cheltenham, after which he went on to serve for three years as a chaplain with the national charity Toc H.
While few would have dreamt he had ever struggled with speech, for Nick it was still an issue beneath the surface, prompting him eventually to explore a new form of ministry: that of the written word. He has been writing now for six years, during which time he has published numerous books reaching an audience many hundred time greater than was possible while in the pastoral ministry; this, in his own words, testimony to the way God so often moves in mysterious ways.
Alongside his writing, Nick works for a variety of publishers as a freelance editor, proofreader and indexer.
Together with his wife and two children, he lives in Wellington, Somerset, where he worships at St John’s Parish Church. He is currently battling with myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow, but remains busy as an author and editor.
