Ghost Orchid

Ghost Orchid by D. K. Christi

Five blooms beyond their summer season on the “super ghost” at Blair Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary celebrate the release of celebrated and local author D. K. Christi’s Ghost Orchid  October 31 by Vinspire Publishing. Book touring begins in Western Michigan November 19, 21, 24 and 27 with a return to southwest Florida in December.

A recent interview on L.A. Talk Radio with Jim Christina concluded that Ghost Orchid is “a great read” and told about the mystery and magic of this illusive orchid that changes lives, especially those of the characters in D. K. Christi’s Ghost Orchid novel inspired by the 2007 “Super Ghost” blooming in Corkscrew Swamp that continues to bloom today.
According to Jim Christina, “Thursday, Russ and I interviewed author D.K. Christi. Her book, ‘Ghost Orchid’ is being reissued October 31st and she was eager to talk about it. Not knowing anything about orchids, Russ and I were astounded at her knowledge of the Ghost Orchid, it’s mysticism, history and beliefs. In all a fun conversation and extremely informative. Incidentally, ‘Ghost Orchid’ is a great read!’
Copies available at Blair Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary benefit the sanctuary.  They are also found in southwest Florida at Pat’s Hallmark in Sunshine Ace Plaza in Bonita Springs and at the Visitors Center on 9th Street downtown Naples.  Check out the Barnes and Nobles in Naples, Florida and Muskegon and Grandville, Michigan for copies of Ghost Orchid and D. K. Christi’s prequel, Bamboo Ring, also at libraries.

D. K. Christi is available for presentations, “Sex, Myth and Magic – The Ghost Orchid,” an informative botanical and legends approach to understanding this mystical and magical flower that captivates so many because it is rare, endangered, and exquisitely beautiful.
