General Experience

I qualified as an indexer in 2014 and was joint winner of the Betty Moys prize for best new indexer of 2013. I have a degree in English Language and Literature from Balliol College, Oxford, and an MA in Literature from the Open University. I enjoy indexing books on any aspect of English and foreign literature and culture. I am especially interested in the literature and culture of Spain and Latin America. I am also able to index books in other areas of the Arts and Humanities.



Literature and Poetry In English

I have a BA in English language and literature from Oxford University and an MA in literature from the Open University. I have indexed a variety of books on the subject including The Alvarez Generation by William Wootten (Liverpool University Press); Wonderlands: The Last Romances of William Morris by Phillippa Bennett (Peter Lang); How to Write Like Tolstoy by R. Cohen (Penguin Random House). I have also indexed two substantial volumes on Classical Reception: The Oxford History of Classical Reception in English Literature vol.5 (Haynes, ed.); and Epic Performances from the Middle Ages into the Twenty-First Century, ed. by Fiona Macintosh (OUP).

Literature and Poetry In Foreign Languages

I enjoy reading literature in translation and have indexed Reading Women in Late Medieval Europe by Alfred Thomas (Palgrave Macmillan). I frequently read literature in Spanish and have recently indexed Contemporary Central American Fiction by Jeffrey Browitt (Sussex Academic Press)

Art History

A personal interest. I have attended a Society of Indexers workshop on this topic.


I have indexed several books on Spanish history and literature, and also on Latin American literature.

Spanish (Works About)

I love Hispanic literature and culture, and have indexed several books on Spanish and Latin American literature and history.
