Agatha Christie

Bookworms and mystery lovers would know Agatha Christie, who was an excellent playwright and author of many popular fiction stories. Agatha was born on September 15, 1890 as Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller. She became a famous mystery writer with best selling works such as “Murder on the Orient Express” and “Mystery of the Blue Train”.

Her first novel was entitled “The Mysterious Affair at Styles” which was published in 1920 to propel Agatha to the walls of fame. Billions of copies were sold with every piece of works produced by Agatha to establish her writing skills and talent in mystery stories.

She married Colonel Archibald Christie in 1914 and died on January 12, 1976 after a rich and exciting life as a best-selling author in romance and crime stories. Agatha Christie is aptly nicknamed “Queen of Mystery” or “Queen of Crime” for the many best sellers she produced.

Agatha was the youngest of three siblings with a home schooling program where her mother encouraged her to write expressively which Agatha did through fantasy play and fiction characters. Her first book “The Mysterious Affair at Styles” introduced her famous Belgian fictional detective character, Hercule Poirot, who investigated and solved the murder of a rich heiress.

Great Literary Works

Despite personal challenges 

in her life, Agatha continued to produce further great works of literary with “The Murder of Roger Ackroyd” and “Murder at the Vicarage”.  The latter works introduced another exciting fictional character by the name of Miss Jane Marple who was an enquiring village lady.

 

Both of Christie’s lovable characters, Poirot and Marple, attracted many readers across the world as inspiring and sharp detectives in dozens of novels as well as short stories. Christie continued to publish well receiv

ed titles with Poirot in “Death in the Clouds” and Marple in “The Moving Finger” and “A Pocket Full of Rye”. Some of these great works have been translated to the silver screen with actresses Angela Lansbury, Geraldine McEwan and Helen Hayes having a shot at Miss Jane Marple.

It is not surprising that Christie’s literary works sold over 2 billion copies with many romance novels as short fictions. Christie’s famous romance novels included “Unfinished Portrait” and “A Daughter’s daughter” under her pen name Mary Westmacott. Christie’s great writing skills in producing top-notch sleuth stories earned her a strong reputation as the “Queen of all genres”.

Christie also ventured into playwrights with successful works that included “The Hollow” and “Verdict” in 1951 and 1958 respectively.
