Hi! I’m Marie C. Baca and this is my website. It proves 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. The newsletter was printed on neon paper and enjoyed a moderately successful run over several months. 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 neon 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 exciting projects right now. 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 and trying to be a Good Human.

Thanks for stopping by!
