Agatha Christie

One of the world’s best-selling authors, crime writer Dame Agatha Christie created iconic characters including Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Her books and plays sold over one billion copies and inspired dozens of films and television series.

Born in Torquay in 1890, she published her first novel – The Mysterious Affair at Styles – in 1920. Her most famous works include the novels Death on the Nile and Murder on the Orient Express, and the play the Mousetrap.

In 1930 Christie married her second husband, architect Max Mallowan. She died in 1976.
