D. K. Christi has just released the novel, Ghost Orchid, inspired by the ghost orchid of Corkscrew Swamp Audubon Sanctuary in the Everglades. The novel about one family's love, lies and redemption through the magic of the ghost orchid, high in the cypress canopy, is also a love story about D. K. Christi's obsession with the Everglades and "her" ghost orchid that bloomed in July 2007 for the first time, on her birthday. The splendor of the sanctuary in all seasons is described in intimate detail. Available now at and Kindle @, soon in print.
