Ellsworth woman brings kids' book she wrote to light
A lot of her own childhood can be found in the pages of the children's book Tammy Cloutier wrote.
Cloutier's idea for "Firefly Freddie" came from her memories of encountering many of the bugs on her family's property while she was growing up in Texas, she said Thursday. As for the writing it contains, she inherited that skill from her father, Ron Browne, who enjoys being a writer.
"He's written the poems we send back and forth at Christmas," she said.
