General Experience

I index books in the humanities for an academic and a general readership.  I also index popular science books.  My first degree is in English literature, and I have a BSc (Hons) from the Open University which included courses in earth and life sciences, oceanography and art history.


Literature and Poetry In English

I have indexed a number of academic books in this area.

Cultural Studies

I have indexed books on politics, film and theatre.

Art History

I did an art history course with the Open University and have since read widely on the subject. I have indexed a book on Picasso and his milieu.

Earth Sciences

Having studied several earth science courses, I am able to index books for general readers.

History (All Areas)

A lifelong interest. I have indexed a book on Victorian theatre.

Natural History

A lifelong interest in the natural world has resulted in a considerable book and DVD collection.
