“somber and ethereal”

– Colin Rickards, forthcoming review, SheCaribbean
“…readers can tell from the onset that the former professor has shed her scholarly cloak for a writer’s mantle….[The] Scorpion’s Claw is reminiscent of Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things, in the emotions she evokes.”

– Malcollvie Jean-François, “Chancy Frees Voices in ‘Scorpion’s Claw’,” Haitian Times, Sept. 2005
“Chancy may well become a grand dame of Haitian literature…luminous and realistic…[s]he captures her readers and never loses their attention….in evocative and illuminating prose….the story she tells of the plight of a Haitian family, serves as an important and worthy subtext for all the political and genocidal atrocities that haunt our television broadcasts on any given day.”

-Irene D’Souza, “Author releases Haitian people, landscapes,” Winnipeg Free Press, June 19th, 2005
“…groundbreaking…and she’s already at work on her third novel”
