I love indexing. Taking your book and weaving an index from the contents is an intellectual challenge that I take great joy in.

My background is in the biological sciences, and I have over twenty years of experience working in social services. My interests and experiences are varied and range from health, fitness, crafting, and photography to women and gender studies, disability studies, environmental studies, and education. Most of my indexing experience is in scholarly books for Canadian and US presses.

I produce user-friendly indexes at competitive rates. Working with the author and/or publisher, I create an index that meets length and style specifications and conveys the central themes and ideas of the text. I use dedicated index software for professional results.

Rates are commonly based on cost per indexable page and vary depending on the complexity of the work.

I am detailed, methodical, and reliable. I always meet a deadline and am often ahead of schedule. My prices are reasonable and competitive.
