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!
