She is the author of: "Archie Goodwin's Office, Nero Wolfe Speaking," (Ayrshire House, 2021), a post-Wolfe sequel based on the characters in the Rex Stout series; "Caticons: 4,000 Years of Art Imitating Cats," (Ayrshire House, 2017), a large-format art book celebrating the special relationships between cats and their people; "Second Impressions" by Ava Farmer (Chawton House Press, 2011), a sequel that begins ten years after Austen's "Pride and Prejudice"; "The Dilettante's Dictionary" (www.DilettantesDictionary.com), a dictionary of terms related to audio engineering and digital music; and is the translator of a 1922 book on carriage driving, "On Hitching and Driving" by Benno von Achenbach, Sandy Lerner ed., 1999).
I discovered Nero Wolfe through Timothy Hutton's most excellent TV series, immediately reading everything by Rex Stout, and ultimately deciding that a few characters might enjoy some fresh air, more facetime, and a history where necessary. As I say in the book, "I am sure that I will have the Wolfe Pack howling at the door." The only defense I have is that I am a huge fan of Nero, Archie, Saul, and the rest, I've read all of the Wolfe novels/novellas at least twice, and I wrote "Archie Goodwin's Office, Nero Wolfe Speaking" with love and the intention of allowing the characters not only a past, but a future.

Titles By Sandy Lerner
In America, it's a time of change: Viet Nam, Watergate, free love, smallpox, the reserve clause, and cheap oil are all history. People are changing names, changing jobs, and changing sides. Aided and abetted by Roy Cohn, Richard Wragg, Dorothy Bruce, the Army, FBI, CIA and the Dutch police, will Saul and Archie live up to Wolfe's legacy?
Archie Goodwin's Office, Nero Wolfe Speaking is rife with answers and, sometimes, more questions. Did Wolfe really die of natural causes? How will Archie function in a world of hippies, goths, disco, the women's movement and word processors?
