“I ride my bicycle to work every morning, and I used to pass a tire store on my way. I saw a little boy playing on the tires almost every day. Even though this corner is really a blighted area, the little boy always seemed so happy with his home. I named him Aaron Jacob Johnson and made up a story of how he used his tires to make a playground.”
Tire Mountain is Andrea’s first book to be available on an iphone platform. She is happy with the results!
“When I saw [the app], I was most impressed. I especially love the way that the dialogue is read. It is full of expression and drama. In addition, the pictures look vibrant and intense.”
Do you make up stories sometimes? Where do they come from?
