Who We Are
LISA DUFF attended NYU film school and, after graduating, worked as a film and video editor. She eventually transitioned to audio when she got the first iPod and discovered the amazing universe of audiobooks. In 2006 she started Wetware Media, publishing over 150 nonfiction audiobooks, several of which have become best-sellers on Audible and other platforms. In 2019, she expanded with a new imprint, Rivercliff Books & Media, pursuing her passion for storytelling.
CAROL STANLEY has worked in media and entertainment throughout her career. Starting in public relations in NY, she was recruited by the legendary Pat Kingsley in Los Angeles. She’s been a television development exec, a script doctor, and freelance editor, but due to her voracious passion for books, none of her previous incarnations were as fulfilling as her current position with Rivercliff.
