Overview

I'm an indexer and editor who loves to help others bring their books into the world. I write and illustrate my own books, too. As a former lawyer, I specialize in law-related books. But as a long-time Waldorf teacher, I also have a lot of experience and interest in books related to education. I do quite a bit of work with the publication branch of the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America. And I'm interested in all sorts of topic. I've indexed books on topics ranging from gardening to international politics.

In addition to law and education, I've also studied herbal medicine, meditation, and art.

I'm easy to work with, timely, and committed to helping you create the best version of your book.

Susan was a delight to work with on indexing my book. She was helpful, responsive, friendly and professional. My book has very technical content, but she was able to create a quality, detailed and effective index and deliver it on time (despite my delays!). I'm sure my readers will appreciate her index! I highly recommend working with Susan!
