I've been a freelance indexer for 17 years. My regular clients come back to me again and again because I provide a solid index on time and on budget. Specialty subjects include business, law, teaching and education, children/parenting/families, and social sciences. However, I will do any subject if I feel that I can give the book the index it deserves. I've done books on subjects such as insurance, space travel, dental terminology, baseball, and wine, as examples. If I feel the topic is not a good fit for me, I will let you know so your book can have a great index.
In order for me to provide you with an accurate quote for indexing, I need to see the whole book.
Please note that I am not an editor, but am a dedicated non-fiction indexer. Because Reedsy is set up to list indexing within the editing category rather than as a separate category, indexers have to be listed as editors too, but I specialize in indexing.

I've been self-employed as a freelance indexer since 2006. My clients include authors, publishers, university presses, and book packagers. I can provide you with a solid index on time, on budget, that meets your specifications. Topics I'm comfortable working with include business, law, education, social sciences, parenting/family, psychology, and self-help. I have done other topics and am willing to work on any book if I feel that I can provide a quality index for that material. I'm an indexing specialist who doesn't provide editing or other related services - I just do indexing.
Clark County Law Library
I work part time in a law library that is open to the public, where I provide reference services and do all that is needed to run a small business. Providing reference service gives me many opportunities to see how people use indexes, which helps me to provide more accessible indexes in my freelance work.

I practiced law for 6 years after obtaining my JD degree. This job provides the education and background for my legal indexing.
