The ‘Queen of Mystery,’ Agatha Christie
The ‘Queen of Mystery,’ Agatha Christie0Agatha Christie was a prolific author and playwright known for her gripping mystery novels and iconic detective characters, Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple.

Agatha Christie was born Agatha Miller on Sept. 15, 1890, in Torquay, England. Educated at home by her mother, she taught herself to read at age 4, a prelude to her voracious reading and writing as an adult. As a teen, she spent a summer in Egypt with her mother ? a time which greatly influenced her later works.

In 1926, following mother’s death and the breakdown of her marriage, Christie disappeared from her home. For 11 days, she remained missing, the story making international headlines. What had happened in 1926 remains the subject of much speculation.

Over her career, Christie wrote 83 books under her name and pseudonym, Mary Westmacott. Christie’s works have sold over 2 billion copies worldwide, making her one of the top-selling authors in history. She was honored with a damehood in 1971 for her contributions to literature. Christie passed away on Jan. 12, 1976, at the age of 85.
