A Kiss for Bobby

I was thrilled on Friday late afternoon to hear the arrival of a magazine through my letterbox. The Local Link is delivered to 10,000 homes in my local area and beyond. Lisa at the magazine had emailed me last week to ask if I could supply a short story. My immediate thought was "A Kiss for Bobby." It was a story very dear to my heart.

I drew this tale from one of my experiences and it lent itself perfectly to one of my characters from my book TEMPTATION. It became part of a boy's childhood memories and would later have a greater significance. When he attended his aunt's funeral his reaction to that memory sparked a catalyst of change in a young Reverend who was overseeing the ceremony. The Reverend then began his descent down a slippery path to his loss of faith, self-respect then personal fear.
