I have been working as an indexer since 2001 and have completed over 200 back-of-the-book indexes for publishers and authors on a variety of subjects in the Humanities. I served as a Director of the Society from 2014 to 2017.
I hold a BA Honours degree in French studies from Newcastle University, and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Librarianship and Information Science.
Before qualifying in indexing, I worked as a librarian in public and local government libraries.
As well as French, I am also familiar with German, which I studied as a subsidiary language at University; Italian and Spanish, which I have studied at evening classes; and Latin and Russian, which I studied to GCSE level at school. I have an ongoing interest in the histories and cultures of the countries where these languages are or were spoken.
I currently index on a voluntary basis for Free BMD and Manchester and Lancashire Family History Society.
I studied History at A level and as part of my University studies.
