My name is Brooklyn Ver Beek. I am 16 years old and I love to write. I started writing and drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil.
I have a father, step mother, two step brothers and a twin brother and sister. I lost my mother when I was 8 years old. She was the most inspiring person I knew. She died after a long battle with breast cancer on September 14, 2012.
I am challenged with Asperger’s Syndrome (same as Albert Einstein) and fight my way through that everyday. I go to Middle School during the day and spend many of my evenings writing and researching my next project.
Some people who I would like to specifically thank:
Dustin Ver Beek (my dad) for giving me advice on what to do in the writing business and helping my website come to life.
Jennifer Cousins (teacher) for helping me put myself out there.
Heather Dickerson (teacher) for being a fabulous language arts teacher and mentor.
All my family, friends and fans for challenging me to be a better author.
