I write accurate, professional back-of-book and embedded indexes for scholarly and trade books according to accepted industry best practices and your publisher’s guidelines. My experience includes writing multiple indexes and multi-volume indexes.

A generalist, I index in many subjects but have special interests in Egyptology, Islam, Muslims, and Middle East studies, having edited many works in those subjects. I have basic Arabic skills and am familiar with Arabic names and terms. See my publications below.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES

I also provide light and heavy copyediting (line editing) and proofreading services and have experience working with non-native-English authors. Please see my website MischlerEditorial.com for details.

BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE

I grew up in Western New York and have traveled in Ecuador, Peru, Europe, and Malaysia, often staying with local families. Southern Illinois (“Little Egypt”) and Southern California were home until I moved to Cairo in “big” Egypt. In addition to editing and indexing, I’ve taught English as a foreign language (EFL) and other subjects in the US and Egypt.

I began editing part-time in 1996 and worked in-house full-time from 2004 through 2015.

I added indexing to my repertoire in 2014 after completing the University of California at Berkeley’s Indexing Theory & Application program.
