Mountain to Sea Indexing
Altadena, California United States
I am a former public children’s librarian/manager and current back-of-the-book indexer. The index that I will create for you will not only enhance your book but will also strengthen the connection between your text and your reader.
I welcome the opportunity to work with authors, editors, and publishers from all communities and backgrounds. As a person of color myself, I am especially passionate about working with other members of the BIPOC community as well as those from other historically marginalized communities.
My indexing interests and specialties include child development, literacy, parenting, education, library sciences, psychology, folktales and mythology, travel and culture, DEI and social justice topics, how-to books, crafting, photography, dance, and children’s non-fiction and reference books.
Although I have particular experience and knowledge about my highlighted specialties, I am a generalist and avid researcher from my days as a librarian and can create an excellent index regardless of any topic you bring to me!
