Barb McIntyreabout this book: 74 Lakeview Avenue was the first book I actually finished. The original title was Behind Closed Doors but I changed it because there were already so many books published with that title. A friend told me that a writer's first book is always autobiographical and I wonder if I should worry about that because this book tells the stories of so many very different women. About half of the book was written in one year but the rest took another five. Writing this book taught me that characters don't always do what you want them to. Some of the things these people said and did surprised even me. At first I didn't like the idea that someone would spy on their neighbors, and I tried to find a way to tie the stories together without it, but by the end it just seemed right.
• "Each character sounds unique and is very easy to connect to in each story, as the author knows how to get the reader to sympathize with each character. The whole book was well put together and the ending is great, and really makes it seem like the end of the book is real and the man who owns the apartment is real."
