Here is a better picture of Dylan Carter who is the Indiana Jones looking character from the Nancy Drew Adventure computer game Tomb of the Lost Queen. The game comes out today (May 8, 2012).

My wife and I just finished watching the episode with Nancy Stratemeyer in it. After it was over I asked if she knew who Nacy Stratemeyer was. I then informed her that she was probably the idea for Nacy Drew. Then I found this thread talking about it.

Yes, in a way you are correct. Nancy Stratemeyer is strictly fictional. She was only made up for the show. She was put in the show to make it look like she was the inspiration for Nancy Drew. Even though, in reality she wasn't because she was never real, but fictionally speaking, just for the show, she was made to look like she was. However, Edward Stratemeyer did have two daughters named Harriet Stratemeyer Adams (1892-1982) and Edna Camilla Stratemeyer (1895-2002). They are a little bit older than the Nancy Stratemeyer character.

In reality, Edward Stratemeyer came up with the characters then hired ghost writers to write his stories for him and the first person to write Nancy Drew was a woman by the name of Mildred Wirt Benson. Mildred Wirt Benson's pen name was Carolyn Keene. Other people would later write the Nancy Drew books also under the same pen name including Harriet Stratemeyer Adams.
