Gravedigger

Every thousand years, the job of Purgatory’s Gravedigger is rotated. His job is to give people who stand at the crossroads of their lives their “one chance” to choose their destiny or the path to Death’s outstretched hand. And if you choose the latter, you’ll get measured for your grave.

To become a Gravedigger, one must be struck by lightning on his or her birthday during a red, full moon and when someone is cursing your name to the sky. In addition, the candidate must be of a true heart and a caring soul.

Timothy Pearson, 22 years old, was struck by that enchanted lightning bolt after seeing his crossroad played out in a sorcerer’s crystal ball. From that moment on he would slave at the job of the Gravedigger to all who chose Death’s path. And he must dig the grave of all who pass on until someone takes his place. His deep secret is that he must rob the graves for fresh organs to sew into his body, to keep it from completely decomposing. Thus under his pristine suit is a mutilated torso.

Gravedigger is the story of Timothy Pearson’s stay in Purgatory as the Gravedigger. Joined by Amelia-Ann, a 19 year old, book smart, aristocrat and the first female Death, Timothy and Amelia-Ann find love in the oddest of places and with the darkest of jobs.
