General Experience

Indexing since 1986, I have worked on a wide variety of projects from science and technology to art, cookery, gardening and craft (these latter subjects being particular interests of mine). I am prepared to undertake large or small projects and work to short deadlines if necessary.


Cookery Books

I have a passion for cooking and preserving the produce from our allotment, and have indexed countless books on this subject over the years.


Gardening on the allotment and at home takes a lot of my time and I have picked up many tips from the books I have indexed.


Creative books are such a good resource to pass information on to the future and creating a good index is an important factor for users.
I run a weekly spinning and weaving group.

Earth Sciences

My university degree was geology-based and I therefore have a good working knowledge of this subject.


I attend classes weekly and have a good knowledge of various types of yoga.

Knitting and Crochet

This is a big hobby of mine and I run a weekly group, so keeping up with current trends.


My university degree was geology-based and I am on the committee of our local Geological Society.

Drawing and Painting

I was the indexer for The Artist and The Leisure Painter for many years and have indexed many books on the subject.

Interior Design

I have completed many book indexes on this subject for several publishers.
