Alick Lazare is the author of Pharcel: Runaway Slave (a historical novel about the maroons of Dominica), Nature Island Verses (a volume of poetry on the themes of Love, Life and Politics), and a collection of short stories - Carib and Other stories
One of his stories, Carib, was chosen for inclusion in Under the Perfume Tree, a collection of Caribbean stories published by The Macmillan Caribbean Writers Series. A poem, Little Bird, from his book, Nature Island Verses, has been selected for publication in an anthology to be released in 2015 by the Commonwealth Education Trust.
In January, 2014, his second historical novel, Kalinago Blood, was published by Abbott Press, a print-on-demand publisher, at the time a subsidiary of Writers Digest.
In his two novels, Alick Lazare, writing from the perspective of his subjects and telling their story as seen from their own eyes and with their own voice, has been a revisionist of colonial history. He has brought new understanding to bear on the nature of his subjects and the narrative of their past.
