It doesn’t matter how you start, it matters how you finish — a thought well placed in everyone's memory banks. Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Ms. Cammock's journey is one marked by an incredibly strong faith in the belief that you can overcome all obsticles, if you try hard enough.
Through childhood, her grandmother instilled within her an important drive to succeed. After an abusive marriage, Harriet Cammock determined she would use her own experiences in overcoming abuse to teach other women that there is help available, and they need not suffar alone. Ms. Cammock has channeled those experiences in writing and through her blog, The Grace Chronicles, where she provides inspirational and uplifting messages to many people.
Harriet began The Faith Hour in 2009 and used this platform to launch The Renewed By Grace Conference, which was designed to bring together men and women whose lives were touched by abuse. “I want to show women that you don’t have to look like what you went through,” Harriet said. Using creative resources and with involvement from other community organizations, Harriet Cammock's plans to host another conference sometime in the next several months.
A published author, she now hosts The Harriet Cammock Show. The show uses principles of surviving and overcoming; principles that Harriet learned first-hand. Ms. Cammock has appeared on The Word Network and Atlanta Live! and is a guest writer for The Hinterland Gazette. A gifted speaker, Harriet Cammock is available for speaking engagements.

Please tell us a bit about your book, Through the Fire: - characters, plot, etc.
My book Through The Fire is my story of how I survived domestic violence. It provides a detailed account of the steps I took in ridding myself of domestic violence and the effect it had on my children.
If you could meet, in person, any of your characters, who would it be and why?
I would like to meet the character of my daughter Alex (even though I see the young adult version of her every day). It was her vivid energy that helped her in surviving the heinous abuse.
