Sandy Lerner

Sandy Lerner, aka Ava Farmer, is the founder of a large technology company and a small grunge cosmetics company, Chawton House Library, and the Sono Luminus recording label. 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" (, 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.
