Naming my book Rooftops was a hard choice for me. Originally it was called Picking Up a Spare because of the homeless man they adopt and because they originally lived above a bowling alley. I changed the title for two reasons. One, it was suggested to me from a former friend that I am no longer in contact with, and I didn’t want to have to get his approval to use his title. Two, I didn’t think it fit what the story had become. It wasn’t any longer just about these two guys going out to LA, and the homeless man they meet on the way, it was now about a group of friends.
“What’s up?” I asked.
“Nothing. It’s just…I didn’t think you’d want to do anything tonight.”
