Astrid Maxxim – The Person

Astrid Maxxim and her Hypersonic Space PlaneNow that I’ve finished four Astrid Maxxim books, I’ve been musing a lot on the girl and her personality.  Astrid started as my homage to Tom Swift Jr.  I really loved that series of books when I was a kid and really wanted to recreate the feeling I had when I read them.  Now, even with the books being as short as they are– 30,000 words (just like the Tom Swift Jr. books) I’ve had a chance to make her a bit more three dimensional.

Astrid is still one part Tom Swift, but she’s also one part Walt Disney and one part Steve Jobs.  Okay, she may be two parts Steve Jobs.  Maxxim Industries really does kind of mirror Apple as far as their computer technology, though Maxxim is even more into aeronautics than electronics.  Still in Astrid Maxxim and the Antarctic Expedition, Astrid gets to take part in what is essentially a keynote speech to developers.  She also dabbles in high finance and hostile take-overs.

In Astrid Maxxim and her Hypersonic Space Plane, she’s become a bit of a hard CEO, firing off memos to the company when something bothers her and in one instance firing an employee who doesn’t present the proper Maxxim image.  Of course, she’s still a fifteen year old girl and has to deal with all those things that are important to fifteen year old girls.

Astrid Maxxim Chapters

I enjoy coming up with chapter titles for Astrid Maxxim.  I try to keep the flavor of the Tom Swift books that inspired her, with the exception of the last chapter.  If you look at the previous books, you may detect a pattern.
