In 1985 CBS made a 30-minute animated cartoon out of my first Hank the Cowdog book. My wife, Kris, and I were self-publishing the books in our garage, selling them at county fairs and rodeos, and struggling to pay our bills.
We were thrilled to get the exposure offered by a Saturday morning cartoon, aired on national television.
