By A Thread Anagrams!

Of the 29 named characters in By A Thread, 18 have names that are anagrams of names of real people. See if you can figure out which names are anagrams and unscramble them! I’ll give you a free password to read my novella Losing Addison just for trying! (Enter your answers in the comments field below.)

Here are the names of all 29 characters and their roles in By A Thread (in order of appearance). Remember, only 18 of them are anagrams. All answers are the names of persons in the public sphere and may be found by Googling. (Wikipedia is also very helpful.) HINT: All but one of the names are of U.S. citizens.
