She is currently working on her second book titled Live Fast, Die Hot slated for release by Doubleday in 2016. In the new book, Mollen writes about the journey to adulthood: "Does my body look fig-shaped in skinny jeans? How do I turn my Mommy and Me class into a Mommy and Weed class? Could I ever pass as my son’s sister? Have I done enough with my life? Am I a good mother? Also, will my son’s therapist imagine me skinny?”

Mollen’s irreverent writing was first showcased in Kidnapping Caitlynn, a short film she wrote and starred in alongside Julie Benz and Jason Biggs. The film had a successful festival life, which included opening the HollyShorts festival in 2010 alongside Demi Moore and Kirsten Dunst.
Mollen has written for Playboy Online, The Smoking Jacket, Cosmopolitan and many more. Heralded by The Huffington Post as one of the funniest women on both Twitter and Instagram (@jennyandteets) and (@jennyandteets2), Jenny’s outrageous observations and pearls of wisdom garnered her two nominations and one win at the 2013 Twitter Awards and The New York Times named her as one of its five twitter feeds to follow.
