Character Spotlight ~ Ronie Kendig's Canyon Metcalfe & Danielle Roark

Canyon & Dani

Ronie Kendig is back!  This time Canyon's story is revealed in her newly released military thriller, Wolfsbane.  Enjoy :)

Over to you, Ronie:~

Brief physical description

Canyon: sandy blonde hair, blue eyes known as the “Metcalfe blues,” athletic build but not overly muscular, and his impervious smirk 

Dani: Athletic build, half Venezuelan, half American so as a Latina, she has the olive skin coloring, long black hair. and, light brown eyes.  

Actor/famous person
For Canyon, I have a model whom I’ve used to portray him.

For Dani, Nikki Reed (with dark hair, not blond as in the Twilight series)

Strengths and weaknesses
Canyon’s strength is his fierce loyalty to those he admires and loves—his family, the Nightshade team, and yes—eventually “Roark” (as he calls her).  

For Dani, her strength is her resiliency and determination not to be a victim. She’s ready to take matters into her own hands to protect herself, even if means killing herself to do it.

Quirk (if any)

Canyon’s quirk is to NOT talk—he’s been trained that way and a tragedy seared into him that talk is useless.. He’s also got this smirk that annoys Dani.  

Your inspiration for the character 

The initial inspiration for Dani came from a real-life private who was rescued in a black ops mission. Everyone else on her team had died, but she was rescued.

Background to the story 

As part of the Nightshade team, Canyon is determined to protect a woman shattered by months of brutal captivity and rape. Danielle Roark faces a possible death sentence if she doesn’t prove her innocence. Together, they head into the blackest night of their lives.

Thanks once again for sharing your characters with us, Ronie ~ love it!

Ronie, I just had to stop by to tell you that the lead in, "Betrayal Begins with Trust" is one of the best I have ever read -- did you write that??? Looks like a book I don't want to miss!

And the model for Canyon?? Hubba, hubba!!

Fun spotlight, Rel, as always!

Julie - actually, yes, I did do that line. I still sit here at times and wonder if it works. LOL Thanks for letting me know it does. Isn't that model. . . um, striking? To think, I had to stare at his image for 5 months while writing...oh the torture. Ahem.
