Quick Facts

Carrie Steckl, Ph.D.

I'm a 6'0 Cubs fan with a PhD, a 6'9 husband, and a miracle of a daughter. And I write.


In the past, I've written about faith, wellness, and caregiving. Magazines such as Fifty Plus and Families of Loved Ones have published my work. I've written online courses for long-term care professionals and published over a dozen academic journal articles and book chapters related to counseling and aging.


In 2013, my "Caregiver's Credo" was selected as best senior caregiving article by Assisted Living Today.


More recently, I've turned to fiction as a vehicle to tell stories that I hope will shine a light on misunderstood and difficult subjects.
