      • I enjoyed it! It was good of you to put the part in about the Cyber Stalkers. You might save a kid when they read that part of the book. I think my Kids need to be a little older to read these books. My Son is 8 and doesn’t like “Girl Stories” yet and my Daughter is 5, good role models for both of them in this series.

  1. Thanks so much for the feedback and thanks for the support. As a middle-school teacher, children’s safety is something I think a lot about. I hope your daughter gets a chance to read Astrid in three or four years. I was nine when I discovered Tom Swift books, and I was trying to recapture that feeling writing these.

      • I have not read all the original Tom Swift books. When I was a kid, you had to find them at a used bookstore, so I found and read several, but not Tom Swift and his Electric Runabout. I’ll have to download it and read it now. I read all the Tom Swift Jr. books which were really just coming to an end as I was learning about them. In any case, I hope you enjoyed the new Astrid Maxxim book, and thanks for your comment and support.

    • Hi,
      Thanks for asking. Right now, I’m thinking Astrid Maxxim and the Mystery of Dolphin Island will be out this summer, so that means Astrid Maxxim and her Outpost in Space should follow near the end of the year.

  2. Hi can you put out a few updates for the release of the next Astrid maxim books? I’m loving them and constantly checking for when I can get my hands on them 🙂
    please and thankyou xx

  3. While I’ll be 61 next month and an avid reader(as is my daughter) We both find the Astrid Maxxim books very Refreshing! I like your writing style!
    My granddaughter who is 7 also likes them.
    I’m hoping you will do more.

    • Thank you so much. That is so gratifying to hear. The reason I started writing Astrid Maxxim books was to try to recreate the feeling that I had as a kid reading Tom Swift. I have plans for many more Astrid Maxxim books. Next up: Astrid Maxxim and her High-Rise Air Purifier!
