After starting her career in the magazine industry, she’s shifted to writing novels — and now they’re getting major attention from big names and fans alike!
Most recently, Knoll’s debut full-length novel, “Luckiest Girl Alive,” was optioned and turned into a movie. Initially, Reese Witherspoon was set to produce, but eventually, after a few production shake-ups, the project landed at Netflix. The movie just arrived on the streaming platform in September, with Mila Kunis in the lead role and Jennifer Beals, Finn Wittrock, Scoot McNairy, and Connie Britton in key supporting roles.
