Providing freelance indexing services since 1998, I create indexes that are tailored to your needs. I work independently and make professional decisions according to best practices in indexing, but never lose sight of the fact that the final index belongs to you. A generalist, I index a wide variety of subject matter, and have a particular passion for biography, history, fiber arts, music, and sports books. I provide quality service, competitive rates, and a very positive attitude.
