Until They’re Dead is the suspenseful tale of virginity and violent death on the Aegean Sea, one superimposed upon a brother and sister’s struggle to reclaim normalcy after their childhood is suddenly and brutally taken from them.
Until They’re Dead has thus far been a two-year collaborative effort-a process I’ve found to be both electrifying and calming.

The Good Eater:
The True Story of One Man’s Struggle with Binge Eating Disorder
What’s it like to be a sexy, straight, male model appearing on TV and sharing dressing rooms with beautiful women? And why on earth would a man throw that away?
In his memoir The Good Eater former model Ron Saxen tells us.
The Good Eater: The True Story of One Man’s Struggle with Binge Eating Disorder is the first darkly humorous look at binge eating disorder (BED) from a male point of view. The book puts us inside Saxen’s sharp, funny mind as he copes with the fallout from an explosive childhood by adopting the candy isle at the local convenience store as his surrogate family.
When we hear the words “eating disorder” we think of spindly adolescent girls, but in America one million male anorexics and bulimics, and three million binge eaters are hiding their disease. At least one in ten of those with a full blown disorder will die of it. In The Good Eater Saxen reveals exactly what goes on in his head at that turning-point moment when inhaling several pounds of food starts to sound like a good idea.
Saxen’s life is a wild ride that includes a childhood of extreme discipline and fundamentalist religion, the shame of being called fatso, the world of high-fashion modeling, his sudden and mysterious disappearance from the fashion world-and embarrassing rediscovery when his agent tracks him down six months and seventy pounds later, killing–and bombing–as a stand up comedian, the shock of Marine Corps Officer Candidacy School, the “Crystal Meth Diet,” nearing the 300-pound mark the month his formerly-thin self appears in Muscle and Fitness Magazine, a failed marriage and finally love and redemption.
