The "super ghost," inspiration for Ghost Orchid, was discovered in 2007 as the only ghost orchid plant at Blair Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Naples, FLorida, drawing those on ghost orchid quests, including D. K. Christi, from across the globe. Mesmerized by its amazing beauty, D. K. Christi visited the "Super Ghost" every day of its three month's blooming cycle for two years as the novel, Ghost Orchid took shape as a tribute to this rare and endangered flower and a plea to save natural habitat. Darryl Saffer, award-winning environmental filmmaker, produced the book trailer at www.dkchristi.com and youtube.com after enjoying the novel and its relevance to his life experience and gifted it to D. K. Christi. It is a timeless story with spiritual implications or a paranormal twist, depending on point of view. D. K. Christi is a journalist for local newspapers
