The Leading Ladies in Dennis Thorne's Life

This interests any reader, although this particular character had a bigger role to play in the protagonist’s life other than being available or elusive. After considering several names, Donna-Jaye Warner got the green signal. It was after her entry that the heroine had an effective presence. Her ‘Celebrities Tonite’ was loosely based on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’. As far as present day Hollywood actresses are concerned, a combination of the success of Keira Knightley and the plateau in Gwyneth Paltrow’s career was the source of inspiration.

In Atlas Reborn, she gained a respectable reputation as a no-nonsense celebrity believing in moving ahead with her life. Her frankness often offends people, especially potential suitors.

Donna-Jaye Warner’s father Derek featured in the earlier drafts of Atlas Reborn. Due to character constraints, he could not be included. So, Donna-Jaye is introduced as an orphan representing the innocent bystander.

Will Dennis Thorne stand a chance against this gutsy celebrity? Atlas, with all his gifts, may find in her a force to reckon with.
