I am a professionally trained indexer with a history of providing clear, comprehensive, highly usable indexes on time or early. I am professional, flexible, and pleasant to work with. I work to your specifications, with or without a style guide, or if you prefer, I can determine the author’s goals, the intended audience, the appropriate format, structure, and length of the index, and the depth of indexing.

Because I have a broad knowledge base and am widely read, I have been able to create highly usable indexes in a wide range of subjects. I assimilate new information quickly, and I am adept at incorporating multiple perspectives into an index when necessary. I am scrupulously attentive to detail, and I have strong analytical and organizational abilities. I have excellent communication skills and I am a terminology expert.

Because the index is an interface between the author and the reader, I base each indexing decision on the author’s intentions and the readers’ needs. In crafting an index, I understand that it is vital for me to see the relationships between details and organize them into meaningful order. I feel it is vital that an index use the author’s words and possess a level of detail that helps readers find the information they need easily and quickly. As I compile an index, I am building a well-interconnected road map to the text, one that involves the judicious use of double posting and cross-references and clear, utilitarian entry wording.

I offer competitive rates. My resume and list of books indexed are available upon request.
