A Writer by Trade–and Inclination
My first paid gig was a short story contest in grade school that took top honors: publication in a national magazine and $500! I haven’t stopped writing since.
But before I wrote for a living, I performed on stage. I’ve been in almost 100 different plays, including The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Annie, The Mikado, Grease, The Rocky Horror Show, A Chorus Line, Barefoot In The Park, Les Miserables, and played everyone from Little Orphan Annie to Marilyn Monroe. When I wasn’t in a theatre, I was still on stage singing in venues across the country and internationally. I stopped performing in the early 1990s. After a lifetime on stage, I’d blown my pipes.

- I’ve been presented to HRH Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh, I waltzed with The Prince Andrew and met The Queen Mother by accident while staying at the same hotel
- .…and once upon a time, in the late-afternoon light of a dinner theater prepping for the night ahead, I danced with Dean Martin (as he sang Inamorata just loud enough for me to hear).
~ Fun Fact ~
If you’ve followed my work for a while, or are an eagle-eyed reader, or an armchair line editor, you’ll notice I’ve dropped my first name–it’s Andromeda “Ana” Chevalier from now on, folks! My first name became politicized during the recent political climate, and I found myself the target of online harassment from bots and other automated/ artificial systems. Since those that know me best knew me as Ana anyway, I decided to simplify and drop the pen-name, so to speak
