“I am so grateful to Scripted Ink for allowing me to explore such a bold, international idea,” said Ellie, “Vestal Virgins is a female story I’ve always wanted to tell.”
Vestal Virgins is a reimagining of ancient Rome from a female perspective. A story of friendship, betrayal, sisterhood and female empowerment set against the epic backdrop of Imperial Rome.
