Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~ Derek Morris

~ Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~


~ Derek Morris ~

Confession time... Derek's named for the character "Derek Morgan" on Criminal Minds. He always seems to think and react with a level head and objectively and I needed a character to take on that roll in My Own Nightmare, so he was born (so to speak). Plus, I love the name Derek. In the spirit of not wanting to just "copy" it, I changed it a bit.

So, now, Derek. Derek is the teenage male version of my favorite tv hackers. Garcia (from Criminal Minds) and then Abbie & McGee (from NCIS) cause... our resident nerd has so much going for him. He's like, the hacker of hackers.

Derek becomes a part of the "rescue" efforts in the book. He's brought in for his ability to hack into systems and do things no one else can. Drew is under a lot of pressure and strain to find Dani Lynn, and with Derek by his side he might have a better chance at it.

Derek is 16, going on genius. He had a large roll to plan in "My Own Nightmare".

But in the beginning he was supposed to be a minor character, mentioned a few times and then gone.... and then something happened, not sure what, and he became an intricate part of the story. He's a well rounded and needed character.

He grew on me. His character (as he grows) becomes and has a big part in the series as a whole. He's one of my favorites. (He's one of my bff's favorites, too.)

Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~ Gabriel Cartwright

~ Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~


~ Gabriel "Gabe" Cartwright ~

Gabe is a many of many skills and mindsets. He's the father to Dani Lynn, the Burke County Sheriff and a man of mystery at times. The retired Army Ranger is put to the test when his wife dies when Dani Lynn is a young child. His soulmate is taken, his heart wants to stop beating. He makes himself a promise, as he does to his daughter to always be there for her. To always keep her safe.

Things in town start going south. A murder, a carjacking and then.... his daughter is taken. He promised to protect her.... and now, she's gone.

It's a fight against a clock to find her, and to keep his men, aka, his deputies in line. (Especially Drew.)

With all the waves he's taking he never gives up. He knows he'll find his kid. He's determined and willing to break any law - of face - he has to to make that happen.

A little good cop, bad cop never hurt anyone, right?

In the end all that matters is that the bad guy is caught, his daughter is safe and they can all  move on.... eventually.

Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~ Jackson Landry

~ Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~


~ Jackson "Jacks" Landry ~

Jackson is one of her hero's of My Own Nightmare. He's the strong, silent type - now. Once upon a time he was a cocky jock. Football star and all around ladies man, or so people thought.

Jacks has her role in My Own Nightmare of keeping his twin brother in control of himself. And, doing all he can do to help find Dani Lynn. She's a very important part of everyone's life.

It's hard to watch your brother suffer, and the anger that arises with the unfolding of events pushes even Jacks to his limits. That really takes a lot. He's deadly when pissed off though. It's kind of hot. Big fella going all badass and all.

Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~ Andrew Landry

~ Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~


~ Andrew "Drew" Landry ~

Drew is he hero (well one of them) in My Own Nightmare. Not only is he one of Dani Lynn's best friends, he's also her man that stole her heart. He was there when no one else could be, he is one of the men in her life that taught her it's okay to be sad and hurt, but you still have to fight. Never give up.

Drew has grown up alongside Dani Lynn (so to speak) as his siblings have. He was a Football player in High School but it just wasn't enough of a passion to make a career out of it. (Gasps) IKR? A Texan not obsessed with football.... in reality a lot of us aren't. LOL

Being a Sheriff's deputy allows him to protect and serve. After Dani Lynn has been taken we see the gruffer, more hard ass side of Drew. He is a man on a mission. Come hell or high water he is going to do all he can to find out where his woman is and rescue her.

Everything he's taught her over the years, the strength and knowledge that she can fight free of anything is all he has to hold onto until he can find her.

He is truly pushed to the edge of a cliff and can only hope when it's time to fly he still has a reason to. Without Dani Lynn, he'd be lost in the sky.

Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~ Dani Lynn Cartwrigth

~ Meet the Characters of My Own Nightmare ~


~ Dani Lynn Cartwright ~

Dani Lynn is the victim/heroine in “My Own Nightmare”. She is a normal small town girl who decided to carry on with a dream she had. She went from being an Elementary School teacher to an author. One who had some success…. Success that put her into the public eye. This is something new for her, as she is not one for gobs of attention. She loves her books, her quiet time and of course nights with the man she loves.

Dani Lynn is by far one of my favorite characters. I know, I know, I shouldn’t play favorites - it’s like picking between children - but this has been a long road for us both.

Dani Lynn is many things… she is smart, adventurous - in her own ways - loving and fierce. She would give the shirt off of her back to anyone that needed it… but come at her wrong, mean her or hers harm, and boy howdy she will do all she can to take you down.

That is something you will see in “My Own Nightmare”. When all else seems hopeless, when she thinks all is lost, hope flares. Her will to keep herself in control bleeds through and the ballsier side emerges. She is a fighter, a survivor and girlfriend is all kinds of snarky. (I’m not sure where she gets that from… LOL)
