Victor Strogalschikov was born in Primorye, in the family of a military man. In the 1960s, his parents moved to Tyumen . He studied at the Tyumen Industrial Institute . He worked as a journalist in various newspapers and on television , was one of the founders of the newspaper Tyumen Vedomosti . In the 1990s, he was the press secretary of the governor of the Tyumen region , the press secretary of the Tyumen oil company , and an adviser to the minister of fuel energy.
The debut in literature was the novel “ Layer ”. Strohalschikov, in his own words, began to write, remembering the saying: if you can’t find the book that you would like to read, write it yourself  . The novel was published in 1996 in the Tyumen publishing house " Softdesign " with a circulation of 50,000 copies.
After Strogalschikov’s second novel, Layer-2 , won the Russian Plot competition in 2002, Layer was published at the Palmyra publishing house in Moscow. The author’s next books were also published there. In 2007, all the novels written by Strogalschikov (“Layer” with two sequels, “ Edge ”, “ Shame ”) made it into the final of the Big Book Prize as a single cycle.

The action of Strogalschikov’s novels takes place in the familiar Tyumen and the Tyumen region, is distinguished by the reliability of the descriptions, in simple language. The main characters are journalists (the central character Vladimir Luzgin is the author’s alter ego), bankers, politicians , and oilmen. He is compared with such writers as Arthur Haley  and Julia Latynina  . A critic in the New World writes about Strogalschikov’s novels:
If the writer Viktor Strogalschikov did not exist, he should have been invented - composed, created using alchemical PR technologies. Because his three-volume novel is a visible realization of the hunches of a major work about the nineties, a kind of battle canvas, that were floating in the air.
It would not be an exaggeration to call Strohalschikov's “Layers” the new encyclopedia of modern Russian life  .
