Maria Bradley – One To Watch

Have you heard of the Only Human Series?


Okay, let me find the book cover for you and give you a blurb or what book 1 is about.

Only Human book 1 blurb:

Only HumanHave you ever felt so different and alienated from those around you that you would do anything to appear the same, even if you hated the way that they lived? Would you go so far as to drink human blood, wear grotesque fangs, and gold/black contacts just to conceal the life and brightness shining within your own blue eyes?
Teenager Aecia is so isolated and desperate that she talks to her diary as though it was a real human friend. She wears neutraliser to conceal her human smell; whitener to deaden her pink and healthy human skin, and drinks the warm, thick life’s-blood of another of her own species, just to go unnoticed and escape death at the hands of members of her own clan family! Aecia has not experienced the joy and freedom of a breezy summer day; has never had a picnic on the park, and watched the sun filter through the leaves of the trees onto her face. No; Aecia must live her life through the deep darkness of night; she must pretend to fear the glorious rays of the sun, and cower at the sound of the birds celebrating the dawn.
Her traumatic and time-consuming theatrical performance every night of her life is simply because she is human, and must live in a sadistic vampire world. She is a throwback; a deformity, and a curious case of two members of the same species producing a different one! She is a cuckoo amongst her people.
Walk with Aecia as she meets her first love. Feel her confusion as she dares to wonder if he is human too? Experience her terror when she finally uncovers the truth about her own origin, and finds that it is enough to shake the foundations of the cruel vampire regime forever!

Here’s what a few readers had to say about the book.

“I definitely recommend this read not only to YA but to those who love paranormal and looking for new twist to the vampire world.”     Kristina L.

“Grabbed me from the start and I just had to keep reading!”      MamaDavis


Here is what Maria has to say about herself:

Maria BradleyI was born to Irish parents in Crumpsall, Manchester and lived in the working community
of Trafford Park until I was 11 years old. Warm memories of this time in my life of love, community and belonging.
We moved to Davyhulme where I was educated at St Pauls, Urmston and De-La Salle college in Salford.
After longing to be a writer since I was a child I finally realised my dream with FOUR’S A CROWD and I hope this book will be the foundation of a successful and enduring writing career.

The genre of Teen/Young adults,suits my writing I think as I am a 47 year old kid at heart. The boundless curiosity and hope of a child is something to be embraced by us all for as long as we are able to enjoy it.


Don’t miss out on this terrific young adult author with a great twist to the vampire story.

This author is definitely one to watch.
