The Talkettes Team
Founder, Business Consultant, Board of Advisors

Lese Dunton created Talkettes, a 15-second micro-voicing platform, by writing and acquiring a provisional patent. Next, she began working with a developer to build a beta site. This soundbite invention is like "the Twitter of audio."

Ms. Dunton runs Dunton Publishing which helps clients publish their print books, e-books and audiobooks, offering a variety of editorial, production, graphic and marketing services. Lese is also the founder of The New Sun, an online publication whose mission is "to find the best in life and give it good coverage." She started publishing on newsprint in 1990, raised capital, and moved it to the web in 1994. People magazine said, "It has caught the eye of high-placed optimists."

At The New Sun she secures advertising, establishes partnerships, edits content, and generates publicity. She has interviewed George Harrison, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Pulitzer Prize-winner Jimmy Breslin, Governor Mario Cuomo, John McEnroe, and Judy Collins, among many others. In addition to People magazine, The New Sun has been featured on CNN, NY1, WOR, and National Public Radio.

In 2005, Lese produced and hosted The New Sun Radio Show on WBAI FM Radio. Michael Douglas, John Dean and Malachy McCourt were among her guests. (Click here for 1-minute excerpt.)

Her articles have appeared in The New York Daily News, The New York Post, Edible Manhattan, and Celebrate With Style.
