Love letter to Atticus O’Sullivan (Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles) From VBC: When I interviewed Kevin Hearne, I asked if he knew the hero of his urban fantasy series would be seen as a hottie.

Kevin Hearne Q&A: Mythology, Oberon and Atticus’ hotness (& Giveaway!) I fell in love with the vivid world Kevin Hearne creates in his Iron Druid series.

While I can’t sit a spell with Atticus or the widow MacDonagh, Kevin was kind enough to indulge my questions. Read on to hear his thoughts on friends for Atticus, getting inside...
