Hi, I’m Erika. I craft thorough, reader-friendly indexes that help sell books.
With over 850 published print and digital indexes, I can create an index that helps set your book apart from the competition. While my specialty is computer technology, my portfolio includes topics from science to humanities.
Whether your workflow is print, digital, or XML-based, I have the flexibility to work with you to meet your production needs. As a member of the American Society for Indexing, I stay current with changes in the industry. I love what I do and strive to make each project its best.
Imprints I’ve worked with include Addison-Wesley, Cisco Press, FT Press, Harvard University Press, The Johns Hopkins University Press, IBM Press, McGraw-Hill, Microsoft Press, The MIT Press, Pearson Business, Prentice Hall, Que, RosettaBooks, Routledge, Sams Publishing, United States Institute of Peace Press, VMware Press, and Wharton School Publishing. (For a list of recently indexed titles, just follow the link.)
My qualifications include a BA in English linguistics, graduate work in TESOL, and 20 years as an in-house indexer for Pearson’s technology and business imprints. Through a series of corporate acquisitions, I gained experience working for three major publishers—Macmillan Computer Publishing, Simon & Schuster, and Pearson—without ever leaving my desk.
In my free time, I volunteer as an editor with Kiva.org, a not-for-profit working to expand financial access to underserved communities.
