This is a public service announcement from Darren’s Mum. Dr A. is off celebrating the shortlisting of her fictional construct, Carol Adlam, in the World Illustration Awards.
I told her, just before she went off out foreign with my Darren in attendance. Make your sock puppet something dependable, I said. Not one of your idealistic artistic types. Make sure you think up a name completely different from your own, and if you must develop a backstory, for the love of all things holy do not make her a former academic.
But nobody ever listens to me. Normal service will be resumed shortly.
