July 10, 2007, I spent my birthday in awe of the "Super Ghost" at Corkscrew Swamp that inspired my novel, Ghost Orchid, praised by NPR Reviews for the beauty of the Everglades that shines through on every page, the ghost orchid the heart and soul of the story. The fiction story is drawn from my personal obsession with the orchid that I watched every day for three months straight during its blooming season May to September, three years in a row. Today, I am available to organizations for the popular talk about the ghost orchid, "Sex, Myths & Magic - the Ghost Orchid." See DKChristi.com | Adventure & Romance Books | Consultant and Author D.K.

The boardwalk is wonderful even if the ghost is not blooming; the swamp is serene and awe-inspiring. You can get a sense of the ghost by reading the novel, Ghost Orchid. It is at the Corkscrew gift shop, Pat's Hallmark in Bonita Springs, and Eastbrook Orchids in Bonita Springs and the Visitor and Information Center downtown Naples. Also online at Amazon.com and all booksellers. Enjoy the magic of "my birthday present" - the best present of all!
