I work with authors who want to present their very best work; I am organized, efficient, detail-oriented, dependable, and have been a major word nerd my entire life. I will write your index or edit your text, making changes and/or suggestions while still retaining your voice and message. Using the style guide of your choice—or creating one just for you—I will ensure your piece shines by gently molding your hard work into the best form it can be. David Mullens, DPM, JD, author of How To Win Medicare Appeals, said, "I could not recommend Heather Pendley more highly. She was extremely competent, very thorough, and uncommonly patient. In addition, she made time for me no matter how inconvenient my request for help. And amazingly, she was less expensive than all of her competition."

Organization, efficiency, attention to detail, and dependability are crucial skills for an editor/indexer and are among my strengths. As a word nerd, I've worked on everything from daily local news, educational workbooks, and résumés, to self-improvement books, B2B, and hundreds of presentations for AWS (Amazon Web Services) re:Invent conferences. Using the style guide of your choice, I will ensure your piece shines.
