Author Talk – Simon Fenech, Breaking Good
Friday, September 11, 2020
11:00 AM - 12:00 NOON
Simon Fenech
Hosted by Eastern Regional Libraries and Knox City Council

Breaking Good is a gripping true crime memoir that shares the harrowing story of drug addiction, gangland crime, hitting rock bottom and the power of second chances.

Simon Fenech was a champion kickboxer who turned to ice following a work accident that left him with severe chronic pain. Once hooked, he was soon dealing to support his $1,000-a-day addiction. Melbourne’s drug lords wanted a slice of the action and when he refused, he was hunted by the underworld and specialist police units - at the same time! But his story didn’t end there.

Simon is now the Operations Manager at social enterprise ‘fruit2work’. His transformation from a drug addict buried deep in Australia’s criminal underworld to an inspirational figure intent on changing the lives of others is remarkable.
