Krista Garcia rose to niche fame in the ‘90s for a zine about stalking the kid from “E.T.” and has been blogging less successfully about food at Goodies First since the dawn of the millennium. Her latest project is The Middle Ages about getting old. Her work has appeared in places from xoJane and Washington Post to Serious Eats and NYmag.com.
