Madhouse Media Publishing is thrilled to announce the release of an extraordinary memoir that charts the remarkable journey of Wendell Parnell, a man whose life story reads like an exhilarating mix of a rock’n’roll dream and a business thriller. How E.T. Phone Home Made Me A Millionaire. Twice! is not just a book; it’s a testament to the power of resilience, luck, and sheer willpower.
Born in Myanmar and raised in Australia by immigrant parents, Wendell Parnell’s life has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. His early years were marked by financial struggles, leading him to drop out of school at 14. But, undeterred, he dove into the world of music, becoming a renowned drummer in the 1960s with the Karma band, touring regional Australia and setting the stage for a life less ordinary.
In the 1980s, Wendell transitioned from being a musician to a music promoter, leveraging his connections in the industry. However, it was the 1990s and the newly emerging mobile phone industry that altered the course of his life. Faced with challenges ranging from an opening-day burglary to facing down Steven Spielberg and big corporations like Telstra, Wendell’s journey is a remarkable account of perseverance and belief in oneself.
Living between Perth and Melbourne and traveling wherever a cheap airfare can take him, Wendell Parnell’s narrative is not just his own story but a beacon of inspiration for anyone who dreams of a life beyond the conventional. It’s a story that encourages us to embrace risks because, after all, life itself is a risk.
How E.T. Phone Home Made Me A Millionaire. Twice! is a gripping, heartwarming, and sometimes humorous memoir that is set to captivate readers. The book is available from 20 November 2023 on Amazon, Booktopia, and Angus & Robertson in both print and ebook formats. This is more than just a memoir; it’s a playbook for dreamers and doers, for anyone who believes in the power of change and the magic of daring to dream big.
