Carrie Steckl, Ph.D.
I'm a child of God, a wife, and a mother. I strive each day to help others. 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. In 2020, my screenplay, "The Twisted Apple Sweetness Patrol," was selected as a quarterfinalist in the Lake Travis Film Festival's feature screenplay competition.
