“No one talks about what happens when you fall in love with the boy next door — not when you’re the boy living beside the boy next door.” Jared didn’t want to do it, but it had to be done. Someone had to sit before the government hearing to explain why a gay man was nothing to be vilified, nothing to be hated or feared… that he was just a man. That is what Jared Montgomery is determined to do. He does so by sharing his story — his and Luke’s story — in the hopes that perhaps even just one more person could understand. Luke and Jared were battling the odds from the beginning. Growing up beside each other, being best friends, they soon learned that if they wanted to share each other’s company, it had to be done in secret, in the confines of the old train car behind the junkyard. There, they were free of the taunts and jibes, the ridicule and hatred… or were they? Unable to embrace who he is, unable to deal with the tactics used by his family to ‘cure’ him, Luke forces himself into a traditional marriage that is doomed from the start. His true, self-denied love for Jared, and the hatred surrounding it, is killing him. The question is, can Jared get to him before it is too late?

The View From A Rusty Train Car won the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards for GLBT, placed second in the Fore Word Book of the Year Awards for GLBT, and was a finalist in the 2014 NIEA Indie Excellence Awards in the GLBT category.
