Connecting people and words

I specialize in indexing and editing academic and trade non-fiction, particularly scholarly monographs and edited volumes, dissertations, and scholarly articles across the social sciences. I am also available for styling references, and I have extensive experience with embedded indexing for CUP, Rowman & Littlefield, and other publishers.

I bring a long tenure in academia to my indexing and copyediting, and to your scholarship.

I have over 20 years of experience in editing, academic librarianship, leadership, public speaking, training, and academic research and writing. (My resume)                                             (My CV)


My experience and skills working with people, learning, and words is now dedicated to helping authors, library managers, and publishers communicate their messages as clearly as possible.


If you need indexing (embedded indexing and standard back of the book) or editing (copy-editing, proofreading, and substantive editing), please be in touch.


In short, she vastly improved and ensured the academic integrity of the collection (saving us heaps of time and headaches in the process). She was also patient and flexible throughout the project. We can't thank her enough and highly recommend her to others looking for a thorough and capable copy editor.

Rudy's knowledge of research writing typical in higher education was beneficial because she both could read and edit my work for grammatical, syntax, and citations issues, but also made comments related to argument clarity or how a given audience might perceive the arguments and tone of the work...I would recommend Rudy's editing because she DOES understand various academic disciplines and is aware of those issues in her editing work.

I was up against several deadlines and approached Rudy for help. Rudy was exceptional. She worked with me on my deadline and was even able to get the projects done ahead of time. She is detail oriented and does not hesitate to offer advice and suggestions on how to improve the content and prose that she is editing. Rudy was easy to work with and helped under tight conditions. Hire Rudy! She will make your project come to fruition.
