Meet Bernard Foong, my friend and fellow Solstice author. When you read his bio, remember...this is not fiction. See trailers and links to his autobiography A HAREM BOY'S SAGA: A MEMOIR BY YOUNG, and contact Bernard, below.
Bernard Foong is,
first and foremost, a sensitivist. He finds nuance in everything. To experience
the world he inhabits is an adventure which is mystical, childlike and
refreshing. He has a rare ability to create beauty in a unique fashion. His
palettes have been material, paint, words and human experiences.
