Hi! I’m Marie C. Baca and this is my website. I use it to show people I am a Very Serious And Important Writer.

My journalism career began in the fifth grade when my best friend and I created a class newsletter. It was printed on brightly colored paper and was moderately successful. Since then, my reporting – mostly business and tech journalism – has appeared in several other publications, including the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Columbia Journalism Review, San Francisco Chronicle, Albuquerque Journal and Half Moon Bay Review, to name a few.

To my knowledge, none of these outlets regularly prints on brightly-colored paper. That tells you something about the state of the industry these days.

I also write personal essays, humor and fiction. I’m working on some projects right now that I’m very excited about. I’ll tell you more about them soon.

I live in the San Francisco Bay area with my husband, two sons and a golden retriever. Here are some things I like in no particular order: cry-laughing, watching my dog play in the ocean, interior decorating, anything salty-sweet, New Mexico and San Diego, crossword puzzles, learning new stuff and trying to be a Good Human.

Thanks for stopping by! Oh, if you want to get a hold of me, please visit the contact page.
