There are some professions that just have a reputation for being boring. Politicians rate high on that list. As do lawyers. And even librarians. But topping the list of boring professions by far are accountants. There is just something about accounting that tends to make people’s eyes glaze over. But we’re not talking about boring people here. We’re talking about interesting people. We’ve had interesting lawyers and librarians in past Follow Friday posts. Now it is time for a very interesting accountant. He’s not just interesting for an accountant, he’s a downright creative person who just happens to also be an accountant. Meet @PCHaring.
P.C. has been around the podiosphere for a while. He has done voice acting for Escape Pod and the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, and even played violin for Metamor City. But his big claim to fame is as the author and creator of the full cast podcast novel Cybrosis. Cybrosis is P.C.’s debut podcast novel, and he definitely came out of the gate swinging. Cybrosis was nominated for a 2010 Parsec Award, and has been nominated again for the 2011 Parsec Awards in the best story long form category. He currently has two other stories in work. If you’d like to see what P.C. has been up to, you can check out his personal blog at http://www.pcharing.net/. I have the feeling that P.C. has other credits to his name, but I’m having trouble finding them. Maybe there is another set of books?
Enough joking. If you follow @PCHaring on Twitter, you’ll quickly see that he has an agile and creative mind. OK, maybe not enough joking. P.C. does have a jovial sense of humor, and knows when to take a gag and run with it and when to play it straight. He can also be serious, poignant, and insightful. The one thing I would never accuse him of being is boring, even if he does make a living through accounting.
Rumor also has it that he’s working on something all space-opera-y for his next novel. I can’t wait to find out.
