You’ve finished writing your book. Yay! Now you would like your readers to be able to find the carefully written information in it. That’s why you’ve come to find an indexer.
I have been a professional indexer since 2013. I have a Certificate in Publishing from Ryerson University. I continue to upgrade my education by taking online courses from various national indexing associations and by attending conferences every year. (Before that, I received a BSc in psychology.)
I have created indexes for a variety of books from several of the volumes of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report to Wash, Wear, and Care (about long-term residential care).
I use Cindex for creating back-of-the book indexes. I use Index Manager for creating embedded indexes from InDesign. I use Word and PerfectIt for editing, and I have Adobe Acrobat for proofreading.
Please see my website for more information, or contact me by email with any questions you may have.
