Books I index win awards in their disciplines; the index is a crucial component of an outstanding publication.

While I specialize in multiple subject areas, one of my strengths is indexing books that cross disciplinary boundaries. I can formulate elegant solutions for multi-authored interdisciplinary works, using a thoughtful selection of wording for entries in conjunction with judicious cross-referencing.

I create indexes for scholarly and trade books and journals, and government and private industry documents. My indexing career spans over twenty years.
