Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter is a talented actress, but everyone knows that. What you may not know however, is that she is also pursuing a career as a writer.
Ritter announced this week that she has written a full-length novel, and that it's going to be published by Crown archetype.

The book is called Bonfire, and it's a dark and mysterious crime thriller. EW released the following synopsis from the project:
Bonfire will focus on small-town corruption as environmental lawyer Abby Williams returns to her hometown after ten years to investigate Optimal Plastics, a local company, of dumping chemicals in local water. But in the process, Abby starts digging into the years-old disappearance of a former high school bully of hers, which in turn, leads her to an even darker secret about the town.
This book sounds like it will have a similar style to Jessica Jones, so fans are likely to jump on board right away.
Bonfire is set to hit bookshelves on November 7, 2017.
Marvel’s The Defenders premieres later in 2017.
