About Agatha Christie

 Q:   Ask a Question about About Agatha Christie       
Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was a English detective novelist who created the characters Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple.

Her prolific output included the novels The Murder of Roger Ackroyd in 1926 and Ten Litde Indians in 1939, and the play The Mousetrap in 1952.

Born in Torquay as Agatha Miller, she married Colonel Archibald Christie in 1914 and served during World War I as a nurse.

Her first crime novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles in 1920, introduced Hercule Poirot. She often broke 'purist' rules, as in The Murder of Roger Ackroyd in 1926 in which the narrator is the murderer.

She caused a nationwide sensation in 1926 by disappearing for ten days (possibly because of amnesia) when her husband fell in love with another woman.

After her divorce in 1928, she married the archaeologist Max Mallowan (1904-1978) in 1930.
