Molly Ringwald has gone far beyond being the girl who made such a splash in films like 1985's "The Breakfast Club."

Though she continues to act, she is also a singer, on tour promoting her 2013 jazz album "Except Sometimes." And in 2012, she published the book "When It Happens to You: A Novel in Stories."

As Ringwald told Here & Now's Sacha Pfeiffer at the time, she found the novel form to be freeing.

"One thing that I've found over the years is a little bit of frustration at just being able to play one character," Ringwald said. "When you write, you can be all of the characters."
