It’s likely that you remember your first kiss. And at a certain age, it can be an obsession – a source of worriment and intrigue.
In his new novel, “Try to Kiss a Girl,” KMOX reporter Kevin Killeen shares what he calls a “kind portrayal of a quirky family.” The story is about Patrick Cantwell, a fictional 11 year old from Webster Groves, who makes a bet with a friend to see who can kiss a girl before the end of the family’s vacation in Grand Haven, Michigan.
Since 1995, Kevin Killeen has worked as a reporter for KMOX. He began his career with St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU.
In his current role, he produces the station’s morning feature “A Whole ‘nother Story” and has written KMOX’s original holiday show for about the last 15 years. Now, he’s written a book, “Never Hug A Nun,” a semi-autobiographical novel about his experiences growing up and going to a Catholic school in Webster Groves during the 1960s.
