About Me

Why do I index books for a living?
I have a natural love of organization and detail, and I derive a lot of satisfaction from making sure "everything is in its place." As an avid reader of books, I have long depended upon finding the information I seek by referring to the index that should be included at the back of the book. Any nonfiction book is greatly enhanced by having a well-organized, thorough, and detailed index for its readers to search. A comprehensive index is a joy!

Whether you are a writer of books, an editor of books, or a reader of books seeking an indexer, know that I approach the creation and completion of indexes with great respect and enthusiasm. Pointing readers to the information they seek...that is my mission!
