Killeen is a Webster Groves, Mo., native and a KMOX/CBS radio news reporter. His first book, “Never Hug a Nun,” was awarded the Independent Book Publisher’s Association’s silver award in the humor category. “Try to Kiss a Girl” takes place in July 1969 as the Apollo Eleven astronauts hurtle toward the moon. It tells the story of two 11-year-old boys who meet on vacation in Michigan and launch their own mission — to try to kiss a girl before the week is over.

McClellan is a columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and a panelist on KETC’s “Donnybrook.” McClellan has, for decades, shared his insight, wisdom and humor through his column, a favorite among St. Louisans. "From Bill, with Love," features nearly 90 of his personal favorites.
