Fleur de Lys is a back-of-the-book indexing service encompassing
a spectrum of published materials. I currently work in Sky Index and
CUP-XML WordEmbed. I have never missed a deadline.

Fleur de Lys also provides editorial services. Faculty members and graduate students have hired me to edit book-length manuscripts for publication as well as PhD dissertations, dissertation proposals, and master’s theses. Having taught English as a second language for six years, I offer services that have been particularly supportive for non-native English-speaking instructors and students. I have helped transform their writing into natural, idiomatic English while assisting them with elements of composition that even native English-speakers sometimes find difficult.


I have a PhD in comparative literature with minors in art history and film history. I was staff lecturer in the Department of Museum Education at the Art Institue of Chicago for six years and served on the faculty of the School of the Art Institute.

This background serves as preparation for the indexing of scholarly and trade books on:

  • Architecture
  • Art Catalogs
  • Art History and Criticism
  • Ceramics
  • Decorative Arts
  • Film History
  • Painting
  • Sculpture
  • World Literature: History and Criticism

Other areas of interest and expertise include:

  • American History
  • Astronomy
  • Criminology
  • Civil War
  • International Studies
  • Natural History and Sciences
  • Photography
  • Politics and History
  • Sports
  • Urban Studies
  • World War II

Furthermore, I specialize in selected areas of French studies, including, but not limited to:

  • The French Revolution
  • The 18th Century
  • The Siege of Paris and the Commune of 1871
  • The occupation, resistance, and liberation of France during World War II
  • French art history and criticism
  • French literature and literary criticism

(Indexes can be created in English from French texts.)
