Zeeland girl, 14, authors three books

ZEELAND, Mich. (WOOD) — A Zeeland teenager has taken her lifelong love of writing to a level many never achieve.

"Like a human would need food, air and water, that's what writing is to me," Brooklyn Ver Beek said.

At 14, Brooklyn is heading into her freshmen year of high school as the author of three published fantasy books.

She can often be found in her favorite chair, doing something she's been doing since she was 3 years old: writing. It started with pictures, but quickly evolved to words and sentences.

Brooklyn Ver Beek, 14, reads from one of her books. (July 6, 2018)"Pretty soon, she's writing 100 page books, then she's writing 200 page books and now she's up to 300 page novels. I mean, it's amazing," her father Dustin Ver Beek said.
