JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) – A Tennessee woman who was Elvis Presley’s private nurse is releasing a book about her life around the music legend and his family.

The Jackson Sun reports Letetia Henley Kirk lived on the grounds of Graceland – Presley’s Memphis home – with her husband and two young daughters from 1972 to 1983 and often traveled with Presley on tour.

Her book, titled “Taking Care of Elvis — Memories with Elvis as His Private Nurse and Friend,” is a collection of short stories.

Kirk, who’s 73, planned to release the book Monday.

For nearly 40 years, she kept silent about her years with Presley.

But Kirk says she changed her mind after a friend convinced her to attend an event during Elvis Week last August in Memphis, where she talked to many of the fans who descend on Graceland.
