Springrain is a 56 years old male, born and living in Stockholm, Sweden. Writing has always been one of his great interests. For periods, though, work and studies, drawing, playing the guitar and running, not to mention love and relationships (rightly so), has taken the upper hand.
For five to six years ago, Springrain decided to give drawing and writing a more serious try.
The creative process, in itself, and the results it produces, is the main reasons and rewards for the effort. Another aim is to forward compassion, humanity, human rights and democracy. A distant dream is to one day be able to make a living on it; at least to some extent.

For seemingly paradoxical reasons, Springrain has not yet figured out how the gears of his project work. But if he finally got his act together and took his driving licence, there might be some positive spillover effects. Springrains greatest challange though, might be to meet a nice woman and build a family. In accordance with Springrains, to some extent, naively optimistic wiew on life, it is never to late.

Besides what Springrain has published here on Fan.Story and on a poetrysite in Sweden, there is only a poetrybook from 2007: "Sasom saden..." (As the seeds...), containing 20 poems and illustrations. And of course, there has been some sketches through the years...

Springrain worked as a substitute teacher for 12 years, and finally took a highschool teachers exam, with swedish and history as his main subjects. Since 8 years he has been working as a caretaker at homes for elderly and sick people.

Springrain has studied at Drew university, Madison, New Jersey, and took a Bachelor of Arts exam in the spring of 82. His major is Political Science. The other subjects are history, anthropology and art. The time at Drew was some of the best years of his life. He also has a Bachelor of Arts exam in literature (Fil.kand), from Upsala universitet, Sweden.

On the surface Springrain has some problems with shyness; not always, but too often; not too serious, but still a problem. And something he has not yet made a serious effort to come to terms with.

Still, without beeing naive or unrealistic, under that, Springrain has a very positive and optimistic attitude towards people, life and the world. Also, a very strong belief in himself and his capacities. Springrain is also active on FanArtReview under the username "Dolphin".
