About Decatur Clary

Born into a family of storytellers, I learned early that the first liar doesn’t stand a chance and an entertaining fabrication was sometimes sufficient to distract an adult long enough for them to forget how mad they are.
I started writing at a young age, mostly just the alphabet at first. Gradually, I learned to assemble words and form sentences, somewhat and sometimes.
Imagine my joy upon discovering I could write my stories down! Consistent creative re-imaging was within my grasp.
Then, one day as I am toiling my life away providing for my family and myself, my wife asked me if I am ever going to do anything with all of my scribblings. I had never considered actually doing anything with them; outside of pleasuring myself and making her read them. Why don’t you publish some of them, she asked. D’ya think? I said. Yep, she said. So I did, and here we are. What do you think?

Review by: MaryLe on Feb. 8, 2016 :
7 Crows, A Secret takes the reader back in time and place. To the deep South before the Civil War, to watch a family grow in strength, unravel, some staying together, others departing, and yet the family remains strong as the years pass. Characters are shown for what they are, and the reader gets to know them intimately. The reader gets to know many sides of the family and is exposed to the good, bad and ugly. But will the story reach satisfaction so that the characters are allowed to see the true picture of their family. Thanks to Decatur Clear's writing style and in depth research, the reader slowly gets to know the characters and the times as they glide by. We learn the family secrets and finally gets to find out the meaning behind 7 Crows, A Secret.
