Bill Yancey saw most of the world while growing up and in the Navy -- two thirds of the planet being covered by water. What he really wanted to do was fly jets like his father, but poor vision prevented him from passing the rigorous physical exam.
Unhappy with his lot in life, he moved from place to place, and job to job, never finding satisfaction. He eventually began to write, to construct a virtual world in which he had more control.
Elvis Saves had its beginning aboard the USS Darby, a troop ship which transported Bill and his family to Europe in August, 1958. Turning eleven years old during the voyage, Bill had never heard of Elvis Presley until the singer missed his ride on the Darby. Elvis's army unit, his comrades, and all his films to date made the trip, however. Bill always wondered if life would have been different had Elvis been onboard the ship, instead of being at home with his terminally ill mother.
