General Experience

Became an accredited indexer in April 2016, I have experience indexing academic, multi-authored, school and trade books. My previous profession was as a teacher means that I am naturally drawn towards children’s books, study guides, education and child development, however I have indexed a wide range of subjects reflecting my many interests – theatre, crafts, social sciences, arts, conservation and the environment, feminism and history. This enables me to create indexes which are truly user-friendly, taking into account how readers will look for information. I am available for indexing throughout the year and can usually accommodate work at short notice, never missing deadlines. I have worked for several publishers, large and small, and also authors.
