Throughout this book we learn about the sufferance of a baby boy, unwanted by his teenage parents.

This boy grew up with an aggressive and womanising father that constantly reminded him that he was a mistake that ruined his father’s life.

While been beaten and mentally abused, all he craved from his parents was love but received nothing but humiliation and sufferance from his father.

This caused detrimental trauma to the young boy, and he grew up believing that he would never achieve anything in life.

I was this little boy, and this is my story.


What Readers Are Saying

"Great read, very compelling, could not put it down. Read in one sitting. You are a good guy, glad that I know you!"

- Peter Healey


"Reading Escaping my Demons gave me an insight into how difficult Joseph's childhood was ... This would be a good self-help book for those who have had less-than-ideal family life and the proof has shown that in the end we make our own lives and can choose toe either be a victim or a winner."

-Vicki Ebert


"The book 'Escaping my Demons' is Fagarazzi's road map to the emotional freedom he now enjoys today."

-Kez Wickham St George



Can you tell us a little about the process of getting this book published? How did you come up with the idea and how did you start?

Eleven years ago, I started writing a five-page letter to myself and I then placed it in the freezer for 11 years not realizing it one day turn into a book; at the time, it was to be a self–healing process. It helped me find a way to stop struggling with my inner emotional scars and a depressive state of mind.  

What surprised you most about getting your book published?

I was surprised at the amount of work that was/is involved in getting my book ready for publication. I found it very intense and time-consuming, especially the asking for blurbs, copy editing and page proofs, but a most satisfying end product

Tell us a little about what you do when you aren’t writing

I am also a self-taught artist and on the days I don’t write I like to keep myself motivated with my paintings as well as putting some time aside by going to the gym 3 times a week.

As a published author, what would you say was the most pivotal point of your writing life?

I would have to say that my most pivotal decision was to abandon as well as remove myself from my family altogether, and in doing so it removed the weight off my shoulders

Where do you get your best ideas and why do you think that is?

What I’ve written is a true life saga about my past…. growing up with a family that had always considered and treated me as a third wheel.

What is the toughest criticism given to you as an author?

As a new author, I am humbled to say that it has been a very encouraging and wonderful experience to have received so many great reviews and compliments from readers of my very first book.

What has been your best accomplishment as a writer?

I have received messages from my readers saying that my story has inspired them to start believing in themselves by changing their mindset from victims to survivors and eventually moving on with their lives and becoming achievers.

How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?

I was asked by one of my readers if I would consider writing another book. I am now in the initial stages of writing and have recently decided to start working on a motivational sequel for the victims of abuse to show them that with the right mindset, there are ways that they can move forward. I did!
