Welcome to my space.
I wrote my first story as a timid little boy fascinated by the world he could create in his head and the endless freedom he could have in it.
Growing up, I fell in love with my imagination. While my mates were out in the mud playing, I was at home in my little room writing a ridiculous story or reading a thrilling legal masterpiece from John Grisham or a gripping tale from Stephen King.
As I grew older, the harsh realities of life threatened to snuff out the fiery flames of my passion for writing, it almost succeeded but passion beat it. Yay!!!
I usually get my inspiration from watching people go about their normal activities, listening to songs and reading books.
My favourite authors are John Grisham, Stephen King, Jeffery Archer, W.E.B Griffin, Chinua Achebe, Buchi Emecheta, Cyprian Ekwensi etc.
During the day, I work as a freelance web developer and graphic designer. I develop web applications for individuals and businesses, at night I usually revert to writing a story or finishing up one I am yet to complete.
I am open to collaborations, business and if you are willing, a chit-chat 😊.

And lest I forget, my name is Vic Iyke and I derive great pleasure in writing short stories that will leave you refreshed while not taking much of your time 😉.
