Agatha Christie (b. 1890 – 1976) was an English crime writer of novels, short stories, and plays. She also wrote six romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but she is best remembered for the 66 detective novels and more than 15 short story collections she wrote under her own name, most of which revolve around the investigations of such characters as Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple and Tommy and Tuppence. She also wrote the world's longest-running play, The Mousetrap.

Agatha Christie (1890-1976) “I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”

Agatha Christie began writing detective fiction while working as a nurse during World War I. Her first novel, “The Mysterious Affair at Styles” (1920), introduced Hercule Poirot, her eccentric & egotistic Belgian detective; Poirot reappeared in about 25 novels & many short stories before returning to Styles, where, in “Curtain” (1975), he died.

Agatha Christie and her books. Although I'm partial towards floor-to-ceiling bookcases, if only for aesthetic purposes, I have to remind myself that low bookcases are friendlier towards five-foot me.
