Emerson’s Guide to Playing with Sand – Work In Progress

Eager for lively summer fun, seventeen-year-old, Emerson wants to put Leukemia behind her. A hospital stay takes a turn for the worse when she dies. In passing, Emerson finds herself newly employed in an afterlife corporation run by God. Under the tutelage of her mentor, Calvin, she learns the ropes of shepherding souls with the sands of life.

Emerson’s job would be child’s play if not for the potent living essence clinging to her that makes her nauseous, induces her associates to stray from Heavenly paths, and delights the devil, who’s looking for a newbie to manipulate. When she discovers that the sand can transport her to the land of the living, Emerson tries to connect with her family and friends. Still, it’s against policy and makes her an ideal target for Lucifer’s plans to control the company and human souls.

Seeking comfort and council from Calvin, Emerson learns that love after death is just as hard. She believes their affection for each other is keeping Calvin from his divine promotion. With some help from a saintly janitor, Emerson must let go of life, prevent a hostile takeover by the devil, and navigate feelings for Calvin if she wants their souls to climb the corporate ladder to Heaven.
