What Others Are Saying

He could have been a great actor, physician, lawyer, architect—any profession which requires talent, presence, confidence, and of course, knowledge. He is taking his turn as a writer—and with his impeccable taste and eye for detail; the reader is drawn into this exciting tale of love, desire, envy and intrigue. You will become fascinated with this man of a thousand faces, and love them all!”


—Sheena Metal, Talk LA Radio Host

“What an amazing book this is; it reads like a juicy novel but is in fact a story of a skin-care giant who has lived a most extra-ordinary life! Burnt Cork signifies how Maybelline Mascara was created. It also signifies the incredible journey of a May December relationship that transcends sex yet bound a man and woman together in a lifestyle that influenced and helped so many young people struggling for identity in the 1970s. After reading it, I realized how the author has become a worldwide activist in the Harvey Milk Foundation today! His motto ‘everyone reserves the right to be who and what they are any time, any place as long as it is with dignity, style and a passion to enrich the lives of everybody around them’ echoes from that distance time period. An emotional real life read.”


—Frank Howsen, Award-winning Director, Producer, Writer & Lyricist

“This is glorious writing at its best! An exciting book told with tongue-in-cheek humor, and filled with history and details of a most amazing life that spans decades!—that of Danne Montague-King, and you simply can’t put it down!”

“In this breathtakingly honest biography, DANNÉ MONTAGUE-KING not only lets us in on all the gossip of an extraordinary life well-lived, but also into his soul. It is a roller-coaster ride of emotions, from the hysterically funny to the heart-wrenching—all told by a man with a razor sharp observation and a deep compassion for humanity.”

—Melissa McCarty, Host of Larry King’s ORA TV and author, News Girls Don’t Cry
