She has also expressed an interest in acting, but has explained that college is a greater priority.[20] Jenner announced that she hopes to pursue an acting career,[21] saying "Right now I love designing and I want to pursue that career once I turn 18, but acting is something I would regret not giving a chance when I'm older, so I would love to try it and see if I like it, I used to do plays in school and then in my community.

In 2014, the Jenner sisters co-authored science fiction novel Rebels: City of Indra with ghostwriter Maya Sloan.
