Hi! I’m Marie C. Baca, and this is the website that proves I am a Very Serious Writer.
I began my journalism career in the fifth grade when my best friend and I created a class newsletter. It was printed on neon pink paper and enjoyed a several-month run. Since then, my reporting – mostly business and tech journalism – has appeared in other outlets, including the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Columbia Journalism Review, San Francisco Chronicle, Albuquerque Journal and Half Moon Bay Review, to name a few. (You can learn more about the journalism part of my life by visiting my LinkedIn profile.)
I also write personal essays, humor and fiction. I’m working on some big 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: cry-laughing, anything salty-sweet, watching my dog play in the ocean, interior decorating, crossword puzzles, learning something new, joy in everyday things, trying to be a Good Human.
Thanks for stopping by!
