T.A. Miles is a being owned by curiosity and fueled by internal magic. She claims to have fallen down a rabbit hole as a child, but in reality seems to be living in a semi-permanent out-of-body experience where she meets fantastical people and magical creatures in lands unknown to earth. She believes her characters are real people, and she publishes for one reason only: to share these people and the experiences they relay in carefully constructed stories unmarred by common human perception. Which sounds very complicated. It's easier to say she prefers to write about exceptionally human experiences.

Let's not try to explain that, actually. It's simpler to read one of her books instead. Remember to read with your head and your soul.

Let all of the emotion and imagination envelop you completely. Go exactly where the characters need to go, feel it to the very brim of your and their being, and then temper the tale of their exploits(only just a little) with common sense. When you've finished, fear nothing of criticism. All art is both loved and despised.(less)

Envisioning the perspectives of people not myself has helped me to better explore and understand humanity and the human condition(whether or not the characters are always entirely human).(less)

“Inevitability is a comfortable escape for people who don't care for the pain that comes with truth. They convince themselves that they had no hand or say in the matter, that whatever happened could not be stopped no matter what they personally did, and so blame can never be placed upon them.”
T.A. Miles, Blood Lilies

“Anisette! You will eat your food, not demonstrate aerial warfare across the table with it.”
T.A. Miles, Raventide

“And remember that within every lie, there is a truth hidden. Know the truth to defeat the lie.”
T.A. Miles, Raventide
