Hi, I’m Jonnita, the daughter of Anita Wood who dated Elvis Presley from 1957 to 1962. I have spent my entire life enchanted by stories from my mother, grandmother, uncles and even my daddy about Momma’s life with Elvis. During the summers when I would visit my grandmother in Tennessee I used to watch Elvis movies and listen to his records while imagining what it must have been like to be in love with this Movie Star, Legend, King of Rock n’ Roll.
Over the years many, many people have asked my mom to write a book about her experiences but she never has. With encouragement from the family, Mom and I worked together for years recapping the stories of her life that are at last recorded in the book, Once Upon A Time: Elvis and Anita. I hope you’ll enjoy it and let me know what you think!
