Professor Robert Longfellow was a stodgy old man, without much life to 
him. He dedicated everything to his chosen profession of education. 
Longfellow placed his mission ‘to enlighten and ennoble young minds’ 
above love, family, and adventure.

What worth does that mission have when all he gets in return are 
blank stares, and students who sleep through his lectures? On the worst 
day of his life Longfellow meets his fate in the form of a mugger’s 
bullet. This would have been the end of a non-remarkable, meaningless 
life, save for the beguiling spitfire of a woman Longfellow encounters 
after he has been shot. Claiming to be “Death” in the flesh, the saucy 
red head, offers him a second chance at life if he can overcome three 
Herculean trials. Can the Professor win his way back to the world of the
 living? If he does is there anything worth living for?

Good story. And how do you create a cover? It won't let me create one. Do you need a specific computer or am I doing something wrong?
