Miles lives with his lovely wife, Lynne along with two teenage children, Brennen and Anneliese and Purple, the cat. He currently works as a veterinarian living in the mountains of North Carolina. Miles is passionate about relationship – not just the interrelationships we share as human beings, and not only in regard to the ways in which we relate to our animal companions, but in reference as well to a subtlety of relationship that is as intangible as it is incredible.
Miles shares this: “As a young man I had succeeded in most every way, and yet my life proved less fulfilling than anticipated. A key element was missing in how I related to everyone and everything in my life, a quality of living that I lost touch with as a child. I chose to make my life about learning how to best integrate this quality of unconditional love into my ordinary moments, and I find that even the mundane can be exciting and challenging as ‘the unseen’ and ‘the intangible’ move more to the forefront of my awareness in teaching me a better way. One of the ways that Love reached out to me was through writing. Life became a healing journey and I continue to write because there seems no end to the wonder I am being shown.”
Miles enjoys spending time in the natural world – siting by a quiet steam, hiking, camping or taking pictures. It was during these times spent in nature that he first began to realize that he had lost something precious somewhere along the way in life. “I had acquired most everything a man could want in life,” Miles writes, “and yet, I felt unfulfilled inside. I realized that I was very uncomfortable inside me. I began to put aside, one by one, the behaviors that I had used to keep me busy in distraction so that I didn't have to admit how I felt. I came to know that this inner world of feeling was something I need not fear. I discovered that I could move past my insecurities into an inner state of self-acceptance and interconnection with the world around me. I wrote this book to share with others, through analogy and symbolism, something of my ongoing journey of transcendence of fear. It is my sincerest desire that others will find hope, adventure, and inspiration within the pages of ‘A Book Like No Other’.”
