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.

🎤🎶

Erik Parker is a singer-songwriter and producer, for whom music is a full-time thing. He performs as a solo act on most occasions, exploring a blend of soul, blues, dub and rock. The sound is tied together with live-looping, beat box, guitar, vocals and harmonica.

His releases are self-produced, including a solo live-looping EP, and a series of singles featuring an ever-evolving session band. In 2020, Erik has taken the opportunity to develop new songs, and better studio skills. There is a string of single releases planned, as well as two video clips with upcoming release dates.

His hopes are to make productive use of the downtime from gigs, to create new music and collaborations, with a view to crowdfunding ongoing projects.
