Following a hard start in life – trapped in the middle of a six-year custody battle between her parents –and a rebellious phase, Gemma Hines turned her life around to become a personal trainer, moving on to become a Special Constable at the age of 18.

After a taste of life in the force, she applied to the regular police and GMP. After months of application processes and interviews, she was accepted. The next ten years of her police career are documented within this gripping read, which offers genuine insights into what it’s really like to be a female police officer.

Only Human covers Gemma’s time in the force up until leaving in 2016, touching on some of the most horrifying and proud moments of her career.

She also talks about becoming fully trained in martial arts – within 18 months she went from being a complete novice to holding 65kg British Title belts in full contact Kick-boxing for the CMAA, full contact Kick-boxing for Golden Belt and a 65kg Semi Professional British Title belt in K1 for Golden Belt. She hopes to compete in a professional fight in 2017 for a world title, which will be aired on live TV.

    Absolutely fantastic read. *****10/10 *****
    What a heartfelt, honest, deep, touching, yet easy to read, biographical viewpoint from an ex female police officer. This book is a journey, an eye opening account which enables you To not only feel and live, But experience first hand the fight through all the highs the lows, experience first hand, the urge to succeed, the struggle to not only soulja on, but leapfrog all the hurdles thrown her way. This book is an inspiration. And i believe, a clear message, from one human to another, an honest account of how, anyone can be anything they choose, we are stronger than we think and all the doubt we bottle up inside, can, with a little effort and focus, can be used to achieve the heights others aren’t willing to climb
