In the early 1990s, I was amazed to receive a letter from an editor at Stackpole Books (now Rowman and Littlefield) asking me if I wanted to write a book.  This is a writer’s fantasy!  I had not even thought about a book, but hurriedly put a proposal together about the cat named cougar (also mountain lion, puma, catamount, panther, painter, and more).  It was accepted and published in 1995.  The rest is a short and terminal history.
