Escaping My Demons



Date Published: November 6, 2022

Publisher: Ocean Reeve Publishing Queensland Australia


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

Excerpt from "Escaping My Demons"

My story is about surviving domestic violence as well as mental and physical sexual abuse. It’s about living and surviving in an abusive, non-loving relationship and finding ways to overcome it by becoming a strong-minded, resilient, optimistic individual and finding ways to believe in yourself no matter  how often you have been unjustly ridiculed, mischaracterised, and discriminated against.

I hope to give my readers an understanding of my pain and suffering and to know what it was like to walk in my shoes.

I want this book to be a reminder that, even though I’m seventy years old, I still carry these scars; this book is cathartic to write, and I wish to help others experiencing what I have to find ways to overcome their pain much earlier in their lives.
