Local writer recognized

Ann Eichenmuller, a resident of the Northern Neck, received third place at the Boating Writers International Journalism Awards at the Miami Boat Show on February 14.

A contributing writer for Chesapeake Bay Magazine, Eichenmuller was recognized for her piece on Cocktail Class racing, a sport which has its origins on the banks of the Corrotoman River and is celebrated each May with the Urbanna Cup. She frequently highlights the local community in her writing, having published articles on the Rappahannock Art League, the Rappahannock River Waterfowl Show, and most recently, a cover story on Christchurch’s highly-rated Seahorses sailing team.

Eichenmuller is also the author of two nautical mysteries set in Irvington, “Kind Lies” and “The Lies We Are,” published by High Tide Publications, Deltaville. Her third novel, “The Lies Beneath,” is scheduled for release in May 2019.

She is a member of Chesapeake Bay Writers and the Writers Guild of Virginia, and a frequent guest speaker for yacht clubs and other community organizations.
