About Carmen Baca
Hello! I'm Carmen. As if 36 years in the classroom weren't enough, I now "teach" from home, helping aspiring authors with their own manuscripts, researching marketing strategies, and working on my next book. You can find me in the mountains of northern New Mexico where my husband and I enjoy a peaceful, quiet life caring for our animal family and any stray that happens to stop by.
My first book, El Hermano, published in 2017 and was selected as historical fiction finalist in the NM-AZ Co-op Book Awards program. That book inspired many ideas for stories which I subsequently wrote and am still writing. Since 2017, I’ve published four more. My 3rd book, Cuentos del Cañón, received first place in short story anthology category from the NM-AZ Co-op Book Awards program. I’ve also published 43 short stories and articles in online literary magazines and anthologies between books.

The struggle for the immortal souls of Tino and his family is now more complex as la Llorona commands nefarious ghosts, including Robert “Arkansaw” Black and Mary McGrath AKA the Lilly of Copper Avenue, to ensnare Tino and corrupt his innocence. Although Tino is quick-witted and morally strong, he is no match against the amoral, ancient evil — but powerful allies arise to protect him.
In this unique world based on the special folklore of New Mexico, benevolent ghosts battle with venomous dark spirits in a life and death, winner-take-all contest that could result in a whole family going to Hell.
Crime manifests itself in many forms.WATER TURNS RED is a collection of 21 chilling stories that explore the various shades of this ghastly color red.
But it always bleeds red.
Within these pages lie the corpses of those killed in cold blood, the cunning minds of their killers, and the wits of
detectives. Together they paint a disturbing image of the human psyche.

Señora Baca gives her own twist to several folk tales and legends told by her elders and ancestors through oral tradition and creates others that are new additions to New Mexico literature. She takes both human and phantasmagorical characters through life’s experiences and emotions in each story and makes their experiences truly credible.
After years of learning how to use her skill, Rosita can only free herself from the ghost's spell by complying with her demands. However, her freedom depends on a Pyrrhic victory: she can only win by losing something precious.
