Alexander to sign copies of 2nd novel in series at Renaissance Center June 29

Release Date: 6/21/2004. Expired: 6/29/2004

Dickson County’s M. Sue Alexander will be signing copies of the second novel in her Resurrection Dawn 2014 series at the Virtually Unlimited Bookstore inside The Renaissance Center 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday, June 29.

The Christian Fugitive is the second of a crime novel series that embraces Christian principles and is set in pre-Rapture Biblical end times. Alexander is currently working on the sixth book in the series and plans to publish the subsequent titles every eight months.

Alexander describes the storyline of the series as “family oriented, futuristic, involving Bible prophecy, romantic and suspenseful.” She said the idea for Resurrection Dawn 2014 came to her in a “vivid dream” in 1997 and she began writing the book two years later.

However, the end of the first book didn’t complete the story and she has continued with the saga until she now has seven books planned to tell the ongoing story of a woman who recovers from amnesia and seeks to solve her husband’s murder, a 25-year-old unsolved crime.

In Resurrection Dawn 2014, the first book in the series, Victoria Martin Tempest suddenly began to recall events prior to her near-fatal automobile accident in 1989. Unable to recognize her daughter, Karen, or fiancé, Dr. Mark James, Victoria struggled to comprehend her place in a changed society be re-examining her religious values.

Victoria learned that her attorney husband, Jeffrey, was murdered the night of her accident and she launches an investigation, bringing in private detective George Hendricks to assist.

In The Christian Fugitive, Victoria learns that she is wanted by the police as the prime suspect in her husband’s murder. She becomes suspicious of her fiancé’s relationship with not only a questionable businessman, but her daughter as well.

Victoria goes undercover to continue searching for answers, narrowly avoiding capture in Nashville and struggling to help her mother avoid “voluntary cessation,” a futuristic version of assisted suicide. In the meantime, romance brightens her life as a new man enters the picture.

“As the characters become more familiar with each subsequent novel, the reader will more readily identify with Victoria Tempest, root for her to win, for truth to prevail in a deceptive world,” Alexander says.

Raised on the grounds of Western State Hospital for the mentally ill, where her father was the resident dentist for 30 years, Alexander has a vivid imagination that threads through her unusual stories. A 1958 graduate of Central High School in Bolivar, Tenn., she earned her degrees at Union University and the University of Memphis.

During the 1990s, Alexander recorded and released four gospel albums and was a BMI-affiliated writer-publisher. She also has taught school and sold real estate before retiring in 1999 and moving to Dickson County.

Copies of The Christian Fugitive are available at the Virtually Unlimited Bookstore and other area stores, Borders bookstores and at Amazon.com.
