Avril is on holiday with her family and her best friend, Susan. They are in Abersoch, Wales. Avril’s father (Martin) has connected his laptop to the Internet while they are all in the garden of the holiday house. Susan takes the opportunity to introduce Avril to Stardoll.com, who immediately loves it. She very quickly creates a medoll called Dolphindol.. and the rest is… history.

Martin Roan's XBOX
Martin was born on the 1st May 1976, and works as a webmaster in the local business park in the town of Wigglestead. He loves technical things like PDAs, iPods, computer games and anything new. He is an easy going guy, and loves his wife, Jill, but has some weird quirks! One of his weird habits is wearing strange odd clothes. For example, he has a pair of bright blue trainers, which he likes to wear with his brown track suit when he goes jogging. Here is a tweet from the Tamzina & Avril Adventures (August 2nd 2009) where he wears this odd combination:
He likes to be up to date, and so listens to the news a lot. Maybe someone will gift him an iPod Touch, which he loves, but he does not have one yet! He has a varied music taste, including Robert Palmer, T Rex, and the Electric Light Orchestra. In August 2009, there was a series of tweets featuring Martin playing air guitar to Mr. Blue sky by the Electric Light Orchestra. He enjoyed it so much he fell over, which was made more embarrassing when he found out that he was being secretly watched by his daughters, who found it very funny.
Martin’s favourite fun activity is playing FIFA 10 on his XBOX 360. Here is a tweet from the story where he is having fun on his XBOX 360:
Martin does have an arch enemy, and that is “Snap the dog”.
They seem to have a friendly rivalry. Snap is the pet dog belonging to Madeline, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Winter who own the local sweet shop in Moorsville. Here is an example of the relationship between Martin and Snap the dog:
Martin loves his three daughters, and spends as much time with them as he can. He likes making up bedtime stories from events that happened to him during his life.
In summary, Martin may not be the backbone of the Roan family, that is definitely Jill, but Martin is the fun parent, who really never grew up, and always makes his daughters laugh, sometimes unintentionally!
