The nickname ‘Virgin Vault’ is something my friends and I used to affectionately call our Capitol Hill home because it was a dormitory solely for young, single girls. My Virgin Vault series explores the transformation of innocent, young women starting their careers in the complex and cutthroat world of Capitol Hill.
I needed the play on words to capture the series’ essence and ‘virgin’ came to mind. A virgin conjures up the image of someone new to, or inexperienced in, a specified field as well as is synonymous with innocence. I wanted the series to be loosely based upon my first impression of working on Capitol Hill, complete with a smoking hot romance.
The TALES FROM THE VIRGIN VAULT™ series grapples with issues such as: leaving home, making grown up decisions, trusting yourself out in the ‘real world,’ your first real job, tackling valid decisions such as sex before matrimony, vacillating between missing your family and hating them for making you strike out on your own, etc.
