Why I wrote The Lost Voice…
written by Allison Agius

alison bio picFor me the book is all about accepting who you are and I think it’s something most of us struggle with, perhaps all of us at some point in our lives.

When I looked ‘out there’ everyone seemed to know where they were going, what they were here to do and they were just getting on and doing it, whilst I seemed to be floundering trying to find my place in the world.
Then, quite by chance, about fifteen years ago I became a complementary therapist and teacher,
and found myself hearing all sorts of interesting things. People would come in looking confident and I would feel intimidated, unsure how I could help this person in front of me.
An hour later miraculously I had helped them, and I’d learnt something too. When our social mask is lowered we’re all a little worried about where we’re going, what we’re here to do and what we should be doing.

It was a revelation and wondered how I could share this with others. So, being a writer in my soul, I wrote about it.

My first book was published in 2001. ‘Hidden Secrets Buried Treasure’ was a non-fiction book aimed at helping people discover how bloody marvelous they were.

It was followed several years later with my first fiction novel ‘Treading Water’, about a woman with a drink problem struggling in an unhappy marriage. Again it was about the odd shapes we can pull ourselves into in order to ‘fit’ into the world – or at least, what we believe we need to do to fit.

The truth is, we don’t. We’re actually quite amazing just as we are. Sure none of us are perfect, but isn’t that the real beauty of us? We can be snappy and grouchy and quite mean, but we can also be amazingly compassionate, patient and kind. All at the same time, sometimes in the same day, sometimes in the same hour!

Kate in ‘The Lost Voice’ does have quite a unique gift, she can hear people’s thoughts,
and it’s the reason she feels so at odds with the world. But we all feel at odds with the world from time to time. It’s the human condition and, instead of being afraid of it, perhaps we should welcome and embrace it?
