In 2011, he created Little Miss Princess and in 2014, he created Little Miss Hug. In 2016 he created Mr. Marvelous, Mr. Adventure, Little Miss Fabulous and Little Miss Sparkle. Adam married the lady who he met on his holiday in Australia in the late 1980's. He has one brother, Giles, born in 1966 and twin sisters, Amelia and Sophie, born in 1970, who inspired Roger to create the Little Miss Twins book.
